The usual procedure is to submit your film to the festival. If it is accepted it will be put on the program. At the top tier festivals there are distributors who attend and watch movies. If they think yours has a market they will make a distribution offer. Of course your understand that the above is greatly simplified - but it is a fair generalization.
Thank you so much, D Marcus!
Wow! Thank you so much for the very enlightening information! We have to think or develop some kind of a better marketing strategy! Of course, when there is an opportunity to attend a film festival, it's also great, just so to feel or experience the pulse of the industry!
