So you made a short film... how do you get it out into the world? Crafting your festival strategy can be complex, expensive, and intimidating.

Show Me Shorts Film Festival, in partnership with Top of the South Filmmakers Inc is here to demystify the dark arts of film festival strategy.

The team at Show Me Shorts are experts in creating international festival strategies for short films. In this presentation Festival Manager Mark Prebble will give frank, practical tips and advice that will help you plan and execute a successful campaign. Some of the topics covered will include:

- How festival programming works
- What programmers are looking for
- How to avoid common pitfalls and scams
-Which marketing materials are must haves
- Whether your premiere status matters
- How to maximise your submission budget

Show Me Shorts is New Zealand's leading international short film festival, and Mark works closely with filmmakers who are selected. At this workshop, he will be recently returned from a key festival market in France, ready to share his knowledge. Come ready to learn, and bring all your burning questions. Join us for some socialising and networking at McCashin's afterwards.
