Editorial Reviews


Since my first feature was ignored by every major film festival in America, I can personally attest to the need for this DVD! Get it and get in!" --Aron Campisano, Director, The Master Plan

How To Get Your Film Into Film Festivals! is an advantageous tool for filmmakers who want to make the most of the film festival circuit. --Christopher Holland, Author, Film Festival Secrets

I thoroughly enjoyed HOW TO GET YOUR FILM INTO FILM FESTIVALS! This is a must see for filmmakers looking to get their finished films into film festivals. Actually, I highly recommend watching this guide before even shooting a film - it will give the foundation and knowledge needed to successfully navigate the film festival circuit. Not only does it educate the filmmaker on increasing their odds of getting their film into film festivals and submitting to the right ones, it also lets the filmmaker know how to take full advantage of the chance they are given at the festival. Thanks DreamWeaver Films--you did a fabulous and thorough job! --Melinda Durham, Producer

5.0 out of 5 stars Insider Information That Really Helps September 29, 2010
By Artista
OK. Since I got a tip at the very beginning of this video, that kept me from making a big blunder which could have kept my second short, once again, from easily getting into film festivals, I instantly became a fan.

The video takes you through the entire process of submitting, what to expect at the film festivals, and how to draw attention to your film. Very useful. It contains great visual examples of what a press kit should look like and what to include. I always wondered if I was doing it right? (I wasn't). The clarity I got from this video has me feeling more confident taking my film to the festivals.

I loved the eye-opening conversations with award winning filmmakers who have been there & done that--Successfully! There were lots of tips that I felt gave me an advantage to know. The video has nice production value and is orgainzed it a way that is clear and easy to grasp.
