Online-Special 7 – Strategien für die Festivaleinreichung

There are various aspects to consider when it comes to festival submission strategies, because not every strategy suits every film. For example, not every film has the prerequisites to be screened at the Berlinale or another A-festival. But is this necessary for every film? In this panel, Josephine Aleyt (DFFB), Fabian Driehorst (Fabian&Fred) and Patrick Thülig (Interfilm) will discuss different strategies for festival submission and share their own experiences.
