A Note About This Resource

Almost every beginning or developing filmmaker, myself included, has at some point relied upon these
29
types of curated festival lists during their submission process. While I'm not endorsing any specific lists,
Contributors
30
I thought since so many people reference them, it would be useful to have all the info in one place. On the
Michael Forstein
31
Master List tab, you can sort by festival name, specific list, part of the world, or number of overall entries
Paul Fischer
32
(just right click on a column header and sort A-Z). My goal here isn't to solve the problem of festival curation
Nick Baldwin
33
or strategy - it's just to save time on one aspect of festival research (the part that involves blindly googling
Corey Lawson
34
"what are the best film festivals?" and "what festivals should I submit to?").
35
36
If you know of other curated festival lists from reputable sources that you think would be helpful to filmmakers,
37
please send them to me at info@filmfestivaldatabase.com and I can add them to this sheet! I'll also add new
38
lists as they come out - MovieMaker Magazine and otherwise.
39
40
One final note, in case it's not apparent: there are tons of great festivals not represented here. It's very
41
possible that the majority of the festivals that are right for your film won't be listed here at all. There's no
42
shortcut for thoughtful research and a sober, strategic approach to festival submissions.
43
44
As always, I'm open to ideas for how to make this a more useful resource. Send any thoughts or questions
45
to info@filmfestivaldatabase.com. Thanks, and best of luck on your festival journeys!
