Making a great short film is only the beginning. Now you want people to see it, but submitting to festivals costs money and takes time. How do you create a budget and stay organized; use your time wisely and think like a Press Manager; find out which festivals are best for your film and which submission platforms you should use; and how to generate publicity and when to launch online? Christina Martell, Producer of The OceanMaker (screened in 40 film festivals to date) and Pigeon: Impossible (screened in over 250 film festivals in 43 countries) will share her insights about what to do to optimize your film’s chances of success on the festival circuit.
