Im a little uninformed about film festivals,would this make the cut?

Sorry for not having posted in a while ,life's caught up to me a little so I've been a little quiet about films for the last few months. But my names Dom, I am a 15 year old filmmaker from north wales, I specialise in music as a bassist and guitarist and all of my films are made purely with an Iphone. I recently had an idea for a film (and if I have a good idea, I will almost always try to interpret it into a film) So here's my film, it has religious undertones (to Lucifer and the "Light of the lord", I'm not religious myself but I thought it would make for a fascinating story) and its a semi-psychological horror. Ill leave out explaining the story as id like the film to do that. But id like to know if this would make the cut for a film festival? I feel like I might be missing something when it comes to festivals (what do judges etc look for in a film? I understand the basics when it comes to this but feel as though somethings hiding from me I cant put my finger on ). I want your thoughts and opinions on this film. What did you think in terms of clarity, cinematograph and of the like, I would like to know what I can improve in terms of story clarity (this has been the main criticism of many of my films) . Thanks once again, Ill make sure to post more often from now on haha

Yeah sure it can! It's good to submit to the right fests. You may want to look for things like: Experimental film, underground, horror, shorts-only, and specifically phone-made film fests.

Spoiler: The sequence starting at 2:36 was done really well. It's creepy, and the jump scare was not predictable at all and gave me a little jolt. Well played.

I predicted it but I still jumped. I think it's because you expected it to be some place else but it came from another. Well played.
