They DON'T teach you this in Film School!

Film Festival Hacks is a course that pulls back the curtain on the film festival business (and it is a business). THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL FILMMAKERS!


Save TIME and MONEY by learning what film festivals are looking for and how to position your short or feature film to have a fighting chance of being accepted.

You will be taught from both sides of "the badge." Alex Ferrari is an award-winning filmmaker with almost 600 international film festivals under his belt. He'll show you tricks and techniques on how he got his features and short films accepted with paying little or NO MONEY!

Here's what legendary film critic Roger Ebert (whom he met at a film festival) had to say about Alex's short film:

"BROKEN is essentially a demonstration of the mastery of horror imagery and techniques...effective and professional." - Roger Ebert (Chicago SunTimes)

On the "other side of the badge" is Chris Holland, author of Film Festival Secrets: A Handbook for Independent Filmmakers and festival organizer who has been on staff at two Academy-Accredited (Oscar-qualifying) film festivals.

Chris has also worked closely with the staff of more than 200 festivals worldwide, including Sundance, Slamdance, AFI Fest, SXSW, and many more. Over the last decade, he has consulted on festival strategy with hundreds of filmmakers just like you and helped them take control of their run on the festival circuit.


"Great tips from both sides of the industry - movie producer with plenty of festival experience, and a festival guru that knows the process inside out. this will save you lots of head scratching and give you the confidence and the knowledge you need to start submitting your movie to festivals." - Ioannis Tsiokos


Here's a bit about Film Festival Hacks:

Included in this game changing course: more than 4 hours (and growing) of insider secrets and strategies for getting your film into film festivals (over 35 videos). There has never been an online seminar like this one -- it’s the Ultimate Film Festival Course.
