FilmFestivalWorld.com is about launching films on the festival circuit where independent filmmakers will have access to the entertainment media and to some of cinema's best audiences for their work.
While navigating among the thousands of film festivals in the world to achieve film promotion goals can be so difficult that veteran filmmakers and production companies often task it to outside consultants, by using the tools and resources that FFW has assembled any filmmaker can level the playing field in launching and promoting a film.
FilmFestivalWorld.com has also been designed to serve industry professionals who program, distribute, and review the work of independent filmmakers, and to provide resources for film and media arts students and faculty. In a visit to FFW you can:
Just pull down our Film Genre navigation menu to visit film and film festival gateway pages indexed into the following genres: Animation-Games, Children, Comedy-Romance, Documentary, Drama, Experimental-New Media, Gay-Lesbian, Science Fiction-Fantasy-Horror and Television. Genre gateways make it fast and easy to browse the films FFW presents and by clicking on a film title in one of the Award-Winning Films sections at the top of each genre gateway page you will open a Mediaplex screen for that film where you can watch the film's trailer and access its online press kit. Genre gateways also make it easy to focus on genre-specific film festivals for planning film submissions and festival attendance.
By clicking on a festival name in a map page, in a calendar page or in the festival A-Z list you will see the full festival profile. Click on any of the festival images on this page to see a typical film festival profile.
Once your film is accepted for screening at one of the festivals we profile you can create and FFW will present an online press kit for that film — even in advance of its premiere screening. When a film wins one or more awards from any of the festivals we list FFW will feature the film in a Mediaplex screen. Additionally as the film travels a circuit of festival screenings the Member Posts area of the online press kit can be used for announcements, and used interactively with other FFW members. Each online press kit has its own URL for direct access.
