Submitting to Film Festivals
Been working hard on film festival submissions for Abandoned Allies. All of my research points in this direction, so I'm hustling to get a few submissions checked off my list each week. It's slow-going and a bit too tedious for my taste, but it's important. (Ahem--anyone wanna help with it?)
The idea of sharing the film at a festival is incredibly exciting. I'm targeting festivals that focus on Asian Americans, human rights, and social good. Festivals that encourage indie, female, and new filmmakers are also great. It goes without saying that we're submitting to festivals that screen documentaries, too.
So far the film has been well-received in North Carolina. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback about it. I hope that these festivals will give the film a new life.
