Hey what's up guys I'm back again. This time I'm talking about film festivals and I want your input on this. So I was at a film festival recently. I'm not going to name drop but I was here due to a project I was an assistant director on. There were about 20 other entries (short films of course) and ours was I'd say in the middle of the pack overall. Where people got really mad was the award ceremony. There were at least 7 films that easily deserved awards yet only about 4 got them. Why you may ask because one film won every single award there was. It gets really bad considering that was the only production company that sponsored the festival. As well as the director won the best new director award but apparently he won the same award in 2009. Conclusion for film festivals especially local ones can you basically assume you're film is not even going to be mentioned? I know there are a lot of variables to this question but just in general should you assume this?Thanks everyone.
