View Full Version : Film festival press kit

11-08-2010, 04:35 PM
Just wrapping up filming of my first short. A photographer has offered to supply stills etc. Can anyone tell me what's required if a film is accepted at a festival. Pics, Posters, etc? And, what size of posters? The full-sized ones are quite expensive.

I'm in the middle of doing this. I think the basics are:

Long synopsis
Short Synopsis
Bios (director, writer, lead actor(s)
Production stills
subtitles (if foreign)

I may be forgetting something, though. It's my first time putting one of these together as well. Fests that I've spoken to prefer digital copies of materials, but I would contact them before assuming.

They have the listings of almost every Festival with all the requirements. You can set up an electronic Press Kit on the site.
