Here are 4 reasons to attend Film Festivals:

1. Networking

Attending a Film Festival can increase your odds of meeting the right people for your project. Many like-minded people will attend the same festival and this will allow you to make many lasting connections. You can also learn from the experience of others, exchange ideas and have fun.

2. Enter your movie to a contest

You can enter your film to a video contest, which will increase your odds of winning an award. Even if you are just starting to make your first steps in your filmmaking career, you can learn a lot from the experience.

3. The experience of having your film viewed by a live audience

Your film will be showcased to a live audience, which will provide you a direct feedback. It can be a great experience to share your film with so many people at once, especially when you are a student.

4. Receive professional feedback for your film

A professional jury will review your film and provide an honest feedback that will help you in your future projects. Your film also has a chance of being seen by journalists, which might review it in one of their articles.

Overall, Film Festivals are a great chance to meet new people and gain more exposure of your work.

There are so many reasons and I am so happy that people are starting to get out of their houses and attend events again. You really can't create human connection through online events. It is just not the same. Sure technology is great and all but you can't compare real life with virtual life.
