Submitting films to festivals can prove challenging. And in fact, each filmmaker would like to enter their film everywhere, were it not for the complicated issue with premieres. For filmmakers at the start of their career especially, this can all seem very confusing.
What is the difference between an international and a world premiere? What happens when we ignore the premieres? And who benefits from all this? Vienna Shorts-programmer and managing director of distribution company Lemonade Films Marija Milovanovic casts some light on these questions and discusses the usefulness of a premiere status with both losers and winners of said policies.
Panelists are filmmaker Nikita Diakur, Asja Krsmanovic (Sarajevo Film Festival) and Julie Rousson (Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival).
