THE CIRCUIT: Planning a Festival Strategy for Your Short Film
A short film can be your calling card or a proof-of-concept that helps you finance a feature. Other filmmakers just love working in the medium and seeing where it takes them. And some want to win an Oscar. Either way, at some point, you’ll need to start planning your festival strategy.
Join us as a panel of Oscar nominated, award-winning directors, animators and filmmakers discuss what needs to get done to get your film seen. Following the discussion, you're invited to a mixer next door at the VFS cafe.
