Liam Posted March 23, 2018 Share Posted March 23, 2018 So I kind of want to start the smallest film festival ever… I’d be curious to hear feedback I like the idea of starting something as a way of meeting people and getting somewhere for myself, but also as a way of doing something for others that I wish was done for me way back when. I also think we’re just due for a revolution… and I don’t know if I’ll be able to start it, but I’m so sick of every other option right now. Channel 101 is a bit of an inspiration for this maybe, though I don’t love their format, and maybe that has become slightly too big now anyway and lost a little bit of its original charm. I want it to be entirely inclusive, no submission fee, not one gets rejected (unless they have a budget etc and know that they’re too big for us). So it would have to stay small but still be fun. If we get too much interest, we’d have to rent a big venue, maybe get a sponsor, charge a submission fee, turn people away, which all sounds like what I’m trying to avoid… And if no one is interested, it can’t happen. I’d probably want to keep it kinda local, which could help make it only filmmakers who are actually going to show up. Maybe I could get some guest speakers. I do know a couple people… Filmmakers could talk about their films. And it would just be one night, so people wouldn’t be tempted to only show up for their own films, which is the worst. Anyway, does this sound like something any of you would be interested in? Just trying to gauge reactions. Like maybe it’s actually unappealing that no one gets rejected? The idea probably needs a lot of work. Please let me know if you have any input. kaylee and TrueIndigo 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
