When submitting your movie to a film festival, you need to prepare a one-sheet with your film’s poster, a trailer, and a short synopsis. You also need to fill out all the details of your submission, including your contact information, genre, runtime, and premiere status. It is important to keep your film updated with any screenings or awards and inform the festival if you are an alumni or have any connections. You should know your goals and target the festivals that suit your film’s genre, style, and audience. You can also ask for feedback and advice from other filmmakers, mentors, or consultants.
You can submit your movie to a film festival through online platforms like FilmFreeway, Festhome or Shortfilmdepot. The process usually involves complying with preselection conditions, filling out an online entry form, uploading your film online (for short films), sending your film (for feature films) to the address indicated at the bottom of the entry form. If your film is selected, you must comply with the festival’s rules and regulations.
