What’s the successful short and is it possible to stand out within 5000 submissions made every year to major festivals? Is it a lottery or what are the new trends? What’s the difference between festivals and buyers’ appetite? This plenary will address issues of working with sales agents. Where and when to find a sales agent? What’s the role of a sales agent in various stages of your project? How to find the right sales agent for your film? How to prepare for your premiere? DOs and DONTs in working with sales agents, festival strategies, marketing and pitches at parties.
