SUMMARY

  • Although the internet projects our movie around the world, we will never have the kind of feedback we can gain from a live screening. You will learn more about the movie and yourself when you see the live reaction of an audience.
  • The applause of the audience has provided motivation and encouragement for countless filmmakers. Don't be afraid to feed off this energy.
  • You will meet people at festivals that love movies and moviemaking. These are your future collaborators and supporters. Meet them face-to-face, engage with them and it will help propel you forward to your next project.
