The Film Festival Doctor


The Film Festival Doctor is your festival Agent!

Venice Film Festival is only a week away and Machete is going to be there! - I can't wait to see that film ever since I saw the trailer to it in Grindhouse :)


Film Festival Handbook

Well, its been a manic few days (well weeks actually). I submitted my phd thesis yesterday and it felt very anti-climatic. It kind of felt like when the first cut of a film is finished; its not quite finished until the picture is locked and that final tweak/sound edit/picture grading has been made. That is exactly what it feels like regardinga PhD... Its in, but there's still another mountain to climb as I've got an exam to sit in a few months time (called a viva) which is typically scary and exhausting. No doubt that there will be more corrections to make (or in film language things will still need tweaking) before it can be finally locked and finds a place in the shelf in the National Library!

In-between the PhD madness I have created a 'Film Festival Handbook'. Lots of potential clients mentioned to me that they just needed a bit of help and advice on the festival circuit, but couldn't afford my agency fee, due to a tight budget, so I've created this little Handbook especially for indie producers who are about to embark on the fstival circuit or want a better game plan if they've jsut began submitting to festivals.
