Film Festival Laurel on Movie Poster
Hello all, I've gleaned a wealth of information from you all in the past. I hope you can help me once more.
My first short film is now an official selection at a FF. My poster designer (with great film marketing credentials) tells me it is an amateur move to put the "official selection" laurel on the poster - that I should wait until I have won something at the festival. I know the laurel is promotion and garners more attention. What is the feel of the community on whether or not to put the "official selection" laurel on the poster?
