For most filmmakers who make a short, simply getting accepted into an A-List, or even big B-List film festival is the long held dream. Winning an award at said film festival can be the genesis of a promising career, or a financing deal on a long form project.
Getting accepted into Giffoni was wonderful and is beginning to pay dividends. Off the back of it we have been invited to screen at two new festivals, the Seattle Children’s Film Festival and the Festival des Antipodes, which takes place in the south of France! We’ll be sure to announce the outcomes of those festivals in due time. In the meanwhile we’ve submitted to another 10 or festivals including Shorts and Flickerfest, here in Australia. It would be wonderful to screen at either!
So for now there’s a lot of submitting, waiting and hoping… if you want more frequent updates, do like us on Facebook.
