Then they have people calling you all the time, asking to buy packages - The main one is a booth at their opening night in beautiful Madison Square Gardens! Sounds awesome, but it's not. The booth is a small table that is among other small tables in a room upstairs. And everyone is a filmakker there.
So you are trying to get all of the other filmmakers to see your movie. And the booth costs anywhere from $600-$5000!!! I got the fabulous Silver package which was $1250.
Only 14 people came to see my movie. Sad. I know, I know, I'm stupid, But I had just finished my movie and was desparate to get it in to any festival. But now they have an ARTS FESTIVAL and a MUSIC FESTIVAL!!! More to milk money out of other poor artists. And now they expanded to:
L.A., Las Vegas, and Miami.
I've submitted to about 20 other festivals, and I've only gotten into a few, that's the way it works. I'm not going to complain about those. I never ever complain about anything. In my entire life, in every restaurant I've ever eaten, I have never complained. I even ate a cornbeef sandwich with mustard on it when I ordered Turkey: and I hate mustard.
But this is something I think is wrong, this festival preys on filmmakers and their dreams. But don't listen to me, check into it yourself.
Spend the money you would spend on this festival on something you need like promoting your festival... or paying rent
