Break down the insider secrets to getting your film screened – on a budget!

 

TUESDAY, April 28th, 2020

11am – 12pm PST

(2pm – 3pm EST)

 

A not-to-be-missed one-time event for filmmakersproducers, writers, and content creators of all types –  who want to know the inside scoop on how to make the most of the film festival circuit.

 

It’s common knowledge that the success of an indie filmmaker can be heavily influenced by whether or not a film has a successful festival run.

 

If your film makes even the tiniest of splashes, it can lead to distribution, sales, financing, representation, connections, exposure/street cred, and future (paid!) gigs.

 

That’s a pretty bad-ass list, amiright?!?

 

The problem is that so many filmmakers don’t know what they don’t know and they end up sabotaging their own film, killing it’s chances of making an impact (sometimes before it has even screened)!

 

So here’s where FILM FESTIVAL MASTERY comes in…

 

Slamdance co-founder Jon Fitzgerald & award-winning filmmaker Justin Giddings have teamed up to break down the insider secrets to maximizing your film festival experience – ON A BUDGET!

 

This LIVE online seminar will teach you:

•  How to get into top-tier film festivals (and why that doesn’t really matter!)

•  One simple trick to saving $500 – $1,000 on submission fees (without begging programmers for freebies & handouts)!

•  How to ensure your film has the highest chance of being seen by the ACTUAL decision makers!

•  How to leverage your festival experience to push your career forward!

 

PLUS – Live Q+A!!  Pepper us with questions related to film festivals, filmmaking, and even film financing!

 

BONUS:  What does COVID-19 mean for filmmakers and film festivals?

 

Whether you have a completed film or the rough outline of a good movie idea, it’s never to early to be incorporating a solid film festival strategy into your process.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:S

 

JON FITZGERALD

Jon has twenty-five years of experience in the independent film, internet and film festival communities, a rare leader with a unique combination of skills.  As a filmmaker, he has produced a number of award winning documentaries; and as a consultant, he has guided many independent film projects through the maze of festivals and hybrid distribution models.

 

As a co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival (1995), he led the event the next two seasons before being named the Festival Director for the prestigious AFI Film Festival in 1997.   After running AFI Fest for three years (1997-1999), he created a consulting business, guiding the launch of numerous film festivals (Bahamas, Lone Star, Orlando), directing many others (Santa Barbara, Naples, Hollywood), and consulting to dozens more.

 

In October of 2012, Jon authored his first book, entitled Filmmaking for Change: Make Films That Transform the World. Again, based on the premise that powerful stories can create change, Jon founded Cause Cinema & Cause Pictures, connecting social impact films to related causes.  After serving as Head of Acquisitions for several distributors, Jon Founded iGEMS.tv in 2019, as a guide to engaging movies and series.

 

JUSTIN GIDDINGS

Justin Giddings is an award-winning actor, writer, and director who got sick and tired of waiting for permission to be creative. Despite success as an actor on shows like Shameless, Nashville, Pretty Little Liars, and General Hospital, Justin decided to get behind the camera.  His and his partner’s first two shorts played at over 100 film festivals around the globe, winning multiple awards and best-ofs, and gaining distribution and development deals with Gaiam TV and Gunpowder & Sky.

 

While he continues to work as a writer and director, Justin also has the distinction of being the Kickstarter Guy, the #1 crowdfunding coach for filmmakers.  He’s coached over 170 clients, helped raised $6 million, and has a 97% success rate.

 

He’s an official Kickstarter Expert, a Forbes Business Coach, and regularly teaches with organizations such as Film Independent.  The empowerment of a filmmaker to totally control their creative expression in the world continues to drive Justin’s coaching and educational work.
