Film Festivals are an integral part of every filmmaker’s career graph. They are the best way to show your film around the world, get recognized & rewarded to fund your next project, travel & attend screenings, find distributors, make useful contacts in the industry, get feedback, and read about your film in press. In a nutshell, to be certain that the world gets to know about you and your film.

For a successful festival run for your film, you need a well-designed film festival consultancy, management, and distribution strategy. This is an expert analysis of your film in the context of the festivals' choices. This strategy should be designed by evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your film and highlighting individual characteristics that are important for film festivals. It also offers certain directions for promoting your film, such as, which categories of festivals should it be sent first of all, in which countries it can be well received, and which film festivals are not worth spending time for.
