Well, I did it. I just applied to a bunch of film festivals. Total submission fees: $630. Yow. Just in case anyone’s interested, below are the festivals I submitted my films to. I submitted I Must Destroy You and Fried Ham, my two most recent films. I mostly looked for local LA-area festivals, European festivals (which often have no entry fee (yay!)), and dedicated animation festivals.
I submitted both films to:
I submitted only I Must Destroy You to:
Now I just have to send out DVDs to all these festivals, making sure to label them all exactly as specified for each festival. That’ll probably be my big task for this evening. Then I’ll take them out tomorrow and get them postmarked (many have a December 31st postmark deadline).
