With our vast experience, Film Festivals To Go (FFTG) brings you closer to gaining exposure in several ways. Through your film’s content we find you the right festival to apply to. We decide that based on a variety of factors such as the genre, past screenings and submission deadlines, etc.
We know for a fact that every complete product has a market. We facilitate this belief by walking hand-in-hand as your personal consultant and adviser and share insights purely based on our hands-on experience. The road that we have travelled so far in the most cost-effective manner. We provide the nuggets to get you moving. We engage only to enhance your journey.
FFTG is more than just the middleman you go to, to get things done. We are the company you want to keep close so that all you are left with is the magic and joy of creating films along with the unparalleled experience of a smooth production.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
There are more options than ever for marketing & distributing your film, but there’s also a complicated landscape to navigate and many pitfalls to avoid. To pick the right festivals becomes quite a daunting task, that’s where FFTG comes in to assist. Getting your film exposure to the right festival is an art of its own. Not only do you need to be aware about the content you submit and follow the procedure, but, just as importantly, you need to make sure that the festivals you submit to are serving your goals.
We’ve all heard about a Sundance, Cannes or Toronto premiere being the Holy Grail, without which your film is dead on arrival. That just isn’t true anymore. The good news is that festivals, no longer, are limited to Sundance, Toronto, Cannes or even Tribeca. Filmmakers now enjoy festivals the year round, all around the world. There are 3000+ festivals worldwide that offer a chance to boost your presence on the international circuit, get representation, distribute your film and find funding for your next project. While it’s true that getting accepted in top film festivals could launch your career in a big way, we also know films that were accepted at top tier prestigious festivals never saw the light of day. Likewise, many amazing films have been not accepted at major festivals and have gone on to garner awards, nominations amd get distribution.
Due to our vast hands-on experience we work with you to expand your reach to a wider network of relevant festivals whereby the acceptance probability could work in your favor.
We get you on to the stage quicker than you can imagine. Walk your own path to watch this magical world of movie making; distribution and recognition unfold through your own experience!
