#34 - Career Crowdfunding for Filmmakers

#32 - What Should I Look For on a Film Festival’s Web Site?

EIn this episode: Chris Holland talks about the legwork of creating a festival strategy, in particular the research you should be doing about the festivals you think you want to submit to. Things like: * What things can tell me if the festival I'm looking at is legit or not? * How can I tell if this festival is appropriate for my film? * How can I make the most of my time on the web? * What are the red flags that might make me think about spending my money elsewhere? If you find this podcast useful please review the show on iTunes, your ratings and reviews really do help.

#30 - Negotiating with film festivals

ESometimes filmmakers face the classic "bird in the hand" problem. Case in point: my friend Amy's short film "Pickle" was accepted by one festival, but her "dream date" festival is still on the fence. That's a problem, because showing at the first festival to extend an offer might lessen the dream festival's interest. Should she go ahead with the sure thing, or wait for her dream festival to make up its mind? See http://filmfestivalsecrets.com/ffs/2015/12/podcast-30 for show notes.
