    How to Get Selected for a Film Festival

    Posted on Mar 16, 2016 10:30:01 AM by Jordan Wippell in a girl walks home alone at night, in audience, in awards, in blog, in Blogs, in crowd, in degree, in digital, in Digital Video, in film, in film festival, in film freeway, in laurels, in meat, in movie, in official selection, in screening, in short, in submission, in UAT, in University of Advancing Technology, in vimeo, in withoutabox, in YouTube

    One of the most common questions I get asked when I meet other college filmmakers is; how do I get a film into a film festival? Often most filmmakers have had experience making short films, yet none have been shown or found the resources to get those films into the public eye. Now obviously getting into a film festival is only important if you want it to be and in my mind, you shouldn’t make films that seek the validation of others. There are plenty of other online options in terms of getting your film seen, however the great thing about festivals is that there is a chance to possibly win awards (and money to fund your next project) and gain real time audience feedback. These things will help you grow as a filmmaker and that in of itself is invaluable.

    The backbone of any filmic medium is the script. When I first embarked on my endeavor to make a
    serious short film, I had no clue whatsoever about the art of script writing. My High School at the time didn’t offer any form of education related to the formatting, grammar and skills needed to write a proper film screenplay.
