I have traveled recently to some cities where I hunted down for you several film festival programmers and asked them to reveal some of the tips they think young filmmakers should know, what in their opinion are the things that can guarantee that your film will get in the film festival program. They talked and gave a step by step how their film festival works and to which things you should pay attention when applying.
Who are those programmers? What secrets do they hold?
Hint: Three programmers work for film festivals that are way past their 50th edition.
Stay tuned for more!
