The Film Festival Industry Needs To Change

And we’re changing it

“The days when film festivals could get away with taking money from filmmakers and giving them nothing in return are over”,

Adam Radly, Founder of “I Imagine”

Every filmmaker that submits their film to the “I Imagine” film festival gets these FREE benefits:

Promotion of their trailer to our 750,000 social followers

Free 12 month listing on the HollywoodFlow film sales and distribution platform

Free professional website for their film project

Tools to help filmmakers build a social media following for their film, promote their film, generate revenue from their film

Tools to help filmmakers build their authority, credibility, network and industry presence.

This offer is not just for finalists – it’s for all filmmakers that submit their film to the festival. The cost of submission is $95. There are not other costs. There are no strings attached.

Why would a filmmaker submit their film to a film festival?

Recognition

Networking

Distribution

Reviews from critics

Reviews from audiences

This all sounds great. Except for one thing – you only get these things if you are selected as finalist and, in almost every film festival, being selected as a finalist still won’t get you any of these.

Film festivals have a role to play when it comes to recognising films and filmmakers. However, the days where film festival take film submission fees from filmmakers and provide nothing in return have to end. Most film festivals cannot even provide confirmation (evidence) that they even watched the films that have been submitted. The film festival industry needs to raise its standards and we’re leading the way.
