How do you get your film shown?

Well, there are two options, submit it to a festival by the deadline of that festival by DVD (or increasingly via digital delivery of some sort), submit your film to an independent distributor and they will submit your film to festivals around the world for you, or use one of the exclusively online distributors like Withoutabox.

Withoutabox is a website and mailing list that allows you to submit to film festivals all around the world electronically. This is not the only service that offers this, but it is very popular among filmmakers (other options include submitting your film to Canadian distributors like CFMDC, Videopool, WFG, Vtape, etc)

Even if you don’t have any films to submit, the site is nice because you get a steady stream of DEADLINES delivered to your email which will hopefully inspire you to get your film screened SOMEWHERE…

If you want to find a Commercial distributor or air your Film on TV, there are festivals for that too like The Banff World Media Festival and many many others…
