Cover Letter for Film Festivals
I'm getting ready to submit a documentary short to a few film festivals. I noticed that FilmFreeway and Withoutabox allow cover letters with submissions for most festivals. How important is it to submit a cover letter with my film? Will it really have a major impact on whether it's chosen or not? I guess I always figured film festival programmers are busy enough with watching every submission that submitting a cover letter never really crossed my mind.
