Festival Strategies

I am preparing festival strategies for Recipes for
Baking Bread
. This work is from research from
the British Council Shorts Scheme and Key Festival
list (British Council, 2021). I have documents from
BFI supported festivals and a brilliant article
from studiokamp outlining successful film
festival strategies (studiokamp, 2021). I am
using as a definitive
guide to festival dates and Film Freeway as my
most common submission platform (animation-, 2021; FilmFreeway, 2021). There are
four phases to my launch from BAFTA qualifying
festivals to online launches. My strategy is
for largest audiences for low cost and possibilities
for high profile exposure and awards. This
strategy runs from September 2021 – September 2022.
