How to know which film festival to submit your short film to?
I've made about 7 short films so far, with my latest short i've had the confidence to put a budget, work with a crew, and it was the best learning experience for me, so I understand that's already a win!
However, I feel that i am so bad at this festival game, I naturally submit to the free festivals on filmfreeway and it's been such a delight! However when it comes to the big expensive festivals (Raindance, Indy shorts, La film festivals) I am here wondering if realistically they're outta my league, and whether i should be spending money on the high possibility of just getting a simple "no". I don't know when will I be professionally ready for festivals like these to consider my work.
What's your festival strategy?
