Student filmmakers to strut their stuff at festival screenings â€“ as long as the audience knows that’s who’s being entertained.
That’s why festival screenings should be so fun â€“ you get to see what you want to see without fear of your own artistic expression, but not without the help of a full team of volunteers that will be present to assist you. So you can do it as you want, on your terms.
So the question comes to you: Do you think festival screenings should be for anyone, or for yourself?
We all know you’re trying to find the right balance between letting people know they don’t have to feel sorry for themselves and giving them the kind of experience that will give them a reason to stick around and help make your film the best it can possibly be.
And as long as your festival screening is fun, you can make sure it’s still fun â€“ because you’ll have a great film to showcase if you hit all the right notes with the people at the end.
Festival screenings can be fun for everyone.
