How To Succeed at Film Festivals (led by Adele Hartley)

Adele Hartley, the Director of ‘Dead by Dawn’, Scotland’s International Horror Film Festival, will give you the inside track on the film festival circuit, from fine-tuning and the research required to sift through available festivals to inventive ways to make the most of any screening opportunity.

Session 1: This covers: the submissions process from the programmer’s viewpoint; tips and tricks to help submissions stand out for the right reasons; how to help guide a film smoothly through the various selection processes practised by different festivals; the best ways to respond productively to both acceptance and rejection; what to expect from the festival experience and how to get the most benefit from it; and how one selection can be turned into a sustained period of exposure on the circuit.

Session 2 Further insight into the selection process. How to make films that will get selected. A selection of short films and exercises designed to illustrate the minutiae of selection criteria.
