Tough Love: Why You're Still Not Festival Ready
    In today’s jam-packed independent film marketplace, it is not enough anymore to just show up and look pretty. Talent and a good hairdo alone will only get you so far.

    What strategies, communication techniques, and tricks can savvy filmmakers and producers utilize to help their films stand out to festival programmers upon submission and to audiences once accepted? Is there more to do than just make the best film possible?

    Join us for some straight talk and tough love focused on helping you discover the most creative and effective ways to get noticed by key industry, audiences and critics. Panel will include live pitching from select audience members and analysis by our crackerjack team of filmmakers and tastemakers who will share advice and best practices to ensure you and your film are fully prepared to connect with audiences (other than your adoring Nana!)
