Hello Creative Army!

As you all know, Stage 32 Screenings was born in March of 2020 in the wake of the cancellation of SXSW. Our initiative has since been covered by Deadline, Variety, CNN, and dozens more. We are currently screening over nearly 200 features, shorts, and episodic pilots from SXSW, Tribeca, SeriesFest, Vail Film Festival, BFI: Flare London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival, and Telluride Mountainfilm Documentary Festival to our network of over 6,000 invited sales agents, distributors, managers, agents, producers, development execs, financiers and other professionals and decision makers from around the world.

As a direct result of screening on Stage 32 Screenings, I'm thrilled to announce that:

  • Four registered films have already secured distribution
  • Several more films are in distribution negotiations
  • Over 100 feature and short film filmmakers have been set up on meetings with industry professionals including managers, agents, & producers

Now, we are beyond thrilled to add features and short films from Burbank International Film Festival to Stage 32 Screenings!
