Simply the Best-ivals: Which Film Festivals Are Worth It?

Whether you’ve made a short or a feature, there are thousands of film festivals to consider. So how do you best navigate the festival circuit and use them to advance your agenda? We have enlisted three experts in the field to answer all your burning questions! For our next Global Membership Session, Roberta Munroe, AiF Consultant – Artist Development Programs, who has been managing and programming film festivals since 1996, will be in discussion with Opal H. Bennett, who is on the programming teams for Athena Film Festival and DOC NYC, and Basil Tsiokos, Senior Programmer for the Sundance Film Festival. Our gurus will cover off topics such as what has changed, what hasn’t and how festivals are continuing to evolve. And two hot tips they can offer ahead of time: when creating your festival strategy, be selective in where you submit, and don’t worry if your film doesn’t get into a top tier festival!
