Have you tried getting into the Atlanta Film Festival but so far struck out? Maybe you've submitted to other film festivals and have no idea what you're doing wrong? Unfortunately you're just like thousands upon thousands of filmmakers all over the country and the world in this regard. Wouldn't it be nice if you could hear straight from the programmers themselves?
Well, that's why Atlanta Film Chat exists! We got Kristy Breneman and Christina Humphrey (Programming Director and Shorts Programmer respectively) to come on the show and discuss exactly what filmmakers can do to improve their chances and not burn any bridges along the way. They also discuss how tough it is every year to program the festival and some of their favorites from past years.
REMINDER: The final date to submit films to the Atlanta Film Festival is by midnight November 14th!
