Why take your movie to a film festival?

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE FESTIVAL CIRCUIT   It seems like a funny question—doesn’t everyone want to premiere at Los Angeles Film Festival or Sundance or Toronto? But earlier this month when festival insider Peter Belsito of SydneysBuzz came to Film Independent to talk about festival strategy, he asked it quite seriously. “They only cost money,” he said. “You don’t make any money at a festival. Why do you want to go there...

A Lifetime Love of Movies…by Jeff Cooke

  Jeff Cooke, Aviation Enthusiast, Dog Lover The cinema and movies has always been a source of enjoyment and employment. After leaving college, my first job was with Kerridge Odeon, a film distributor in Auckland, New Zealand. This provided the ideal start for my working life and, unknown to me at the time, the ideal introduction into my own movie distribution company much later. Like most young fellows of my vintage, the yearning for change and “something better” saw me...

Learn why 1,600 Buyers from 80+ countries attend AFM, by Thomas Mueller

Thomas Mueller, Buyer, dedicated Banjoist, DieHard Gourmet When I was about 7 or 8 years old, happily growing up as an only child in a loving, television-free family home on the outskirts of Cologne, Germany, one day a cute big eyed, snub-nosed something crossed my path – it was a deer called Bambi… I’ll never forget that first visit to the local cinema – a true movie palace with a hugely impressive mezzanine and ‘70s state-of-the-art projection and sound. As t...

Start with the End by Sarah Elizabeth Timmins

Sarah Elizabeth Timmins, Producer, Creative Director I originally thought that, before going to AFM, I should have a film that was well into development. In 2008, I started my production company, Life Out Loud Films, to make our first film “Lake Effects.” It was a family drama, the script was still being written and we had no money or talent attached when I decided to buy a half pass to AFM. Here, I learned a lesson that has become the touchtone of my filmmaking career: For tr...

Get one in the can by Christina Marie

  Christina Marie, Producer, Filmmaker After attending my first AFM last year, I was very inspired to shift gears in how I thought of filmmaking. I was banging my head against the wall trying to get big‐budget finance and it finally clicked: I really needed to get one in the can instead of continuing to seek funding for an "Opus" project. A like‐minded friend of mine approached me with a wild idea to shoot a 90 minute length Feature in just 3 days on a smaller budge...
