Film Festival Film

How to Submit a Film Festival Film

Many filmmakers attempt to break into the industry via the film festival submission route. Some start by submitting their script or movie idea to various writing labs. The lucky few get their finished project accepted by the major festivals, such as the Sundance Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and New York Film Festival. But what are the advantages of having a film festival film?

Sure, if you’re able to hire the right publicist to promote attendance by Hollywood industry professionals you’ve got a shot at finding a distributor or sales agent. But there is no guarantee that the industry professionals you would want to see your film will attend. So even though it’s an honor to have your film screening at a prestigious film festival, and even garner awards, the hard truth of the matter is that most film festival films don’t go on to land distribution and most filmmakers don’t find representation.

With Greenlightmymovie, you are in control of who sees your film. Need a distributor? Still looking for an agent or manager? Or maybe you’re in need of (gap) funding for your movie. Target the representatives and companies you would be interested in working with. It’s that easy. Submit your film festival film today to movie distributors, production companies, financiers and representatives.


Upload your trailer and/or mashup (feature length films not permitted).
