Some Festival Submission Advice…

Some Festival Submission Advice...

Hey, all you filmmakers out there. Some quick advice based on requests we’ve had pile in already in our submission process…

We love YouTube, we love MySpace Video. But, if you would like our festival (and, I suspect, many others) to consider your film… please submit it through the official channels. With thousands of submissions coming in, we have to streamline it as much as possible. And, that’s why. We have to keep a universal record of your film, and we can’t effectively do that if we can only watch it on a Web site. YouTube and Google Video are great, important tools for sharing your films, just not for submitting to festivals… yet (I’m sure things will change one day). Thanks, and keep those films coming!
