Short Film Release - Wait for the Bigger Festivals or Go Sooner?
I was lucky enough to have my first very DIY short film screen at two festivals last fall. I just wrapped principle photography on my 2nd this week, and I feel like I've leveled up in every conceivable way. With that being said, now I'm not sure about how to proceed with a release strategy. Should I submit to those same festivals that I got into that run this fall? Or do I wait to submit to festivals like SXSW, Tribeca, etc. that run in the spring? With the real potential that they don't get into those, which pushes everything back by almost a year.
