Panel: what are film festivals looking for?

Having a red carpet premiere of your film is the dream for many filmmakers. To achieve that dream, the first question to consider is, what kinds of films qualify as festival films? There are a wide variety of film festivals, each with its own philosophical and programming focus. The first step towards improving your chances of success, is to understand which film festivals are the ones for you. 

In this 90-minute discussion, panellists with years of festival experience will share their know-how to demystify the film festival. They will delve into questions such as, how do you decide if your project is a festival film; choosing the right festivals for your films. They will also share tips on building relationships with festivals and programmers, to improve your overall festival experience.
