Film Festivals are an essential step in reaching your film's audience as well as catching the eye of potential distributors. Join WMM's Executive Director, Debra Zimmerman, as she guides you through the often confusing world of film festivals and presents ways to use the film festival circuit to launch your film, market it and build word of mouth. Films from WMM screen at the most important festivals in the world, including the Sundance Film Festival where WMM's latest release, SONITA won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience award. Find out how to optimize your festival screenings with tips on creating your festival strategy, packaging your film, and navigating the scene once you're there. This is the perfect workshop to learn how to get the most out of this increasingly important part of your narrative feature, documentary, or short film's roll out strategy, led by one of the industry's leading experts on distribution.
