Top 5 Film Festival SCAMS Filmmakers Need to Be Aware Of!
I’ve been at a fair share of film festivals in my life and I’ve submitted to many more than I’ve been accepted to. With that said I have seen many less than honorable film festival organizers throughout the process or outright film festival scams.
Now not all film festivals are run by grifters and con men but you need to be aware of the signs that a film festival you are submitting to may just be in existence to remove you from you hard-earned cash and not to celebrate amazing independent film and filmmakers.
I put together a few warning signs you should look out for when submitting to film festivals. Stay safe out there everyone!
