Demystifying Film Festivals for Emerging Filmmakers


MONDAY June 17, 2019
6:30pm - 8:30PM

Free! Registration required Experience Level: All

Navigating the world of film festivals can be daunting as a young filmmaker. Which festivals are most beneficial to attend, and how do you get the most out of attending? How do you figure out which festivals are a potential good fit for your film? How do festivals make programming decisions? What do you do after you’ve had a film accepted or rejected? Get answers to these and many more questions, from programmers, festival directors, and filmmakers.

The workshop is being offered by NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth), and NWFF (Local Sightings Film Festival). Submissions for NFFTY and Local Sightings are open into July.

Learn about the world of film festivals, ways to get involved, and how to successfully navigate festivals as a professional creative.
