Getting Film Festival Exposure: Sandra Hebron Interview
Sandra Hebron is former Artistic Director of the London Film Festival and one of our consultants at the Met Film School, offering advice and tips to our students on how to best gain exposure at Film Festivals.
We interviewed Sandra during our recent 10th Anniversary party held at BAFTA where she was able to share some important tips for our blog readers too!
Festivals are vital as they bring an audience to your film, give it exposure to industry insiders, and help to bring on board distributors and sales agents.
The sheer number of festivals out there, combined with the costs of submission, can make the process of planning a festival strategy pretty daunting for most filmmakers. To help you decide on a festival strategy for your film, you need to take into account which festivals require premieres/exclusivity as well as submission deadlines. At Met Film School we have a department for film festival and events which can offer advice with the submission process.
