Finishing your film is only the beginning of the process of making your film a success. Getting your film into festivals is often the only way to not only get in front of audiences but also a way to get in front of professionals who can help take your film to the next level. But navigating the film festival circuit can often be confusing, frustrating, and expensive. This panel serves to demystify the process. Join festival directors, programmers, and filmmakers as we discuss methodologies, best practices and the strategy of getting your film out of your studio and into the festival circuit. The panel will take place following the first screening at Emerson College, Paramount Center, Bright Family Screening Room, on Friday, Oct 18th. at 2:45PM.
