For many filmmakers, the first step on the road to recognition and distribution has been a successful film festival run. But how do we envision the trajectory for our films when things are less certain? Take this time to learn the foundations of the film festival circuit while getting a glimpse into how some festivals are currently adapting to new models. Find out which film festivals might be best suited for you and your film, and once accepted, how to hold your own and take advantage of each film festival experience.
