Film Festival Secrets – Do’s and Don’ts

As we get ready for GloryReelz Christian Film Festival this weekend, I can’t help but think back to the GloryReelz festival two years ago.  It was the first festival that we attended and won. What a special moment that was, to be recognized as “Best Female Director” and then “Best Film”. Since then, we’ve won many awards, but we’re always surprised anytime the emcee calls our name, and it never gets old. In the past two years we’ve been accepted and rejected, attended and not attended, won and lost many festivals. Along the way, we’ve learned a few secrets for film festival success.

Hi! I'm Sharon Wilharm, a female filmmaker, blogger, and speaker. In 1999 I wrote, directed, and starred in my first feature film. Since then, my husband Fred and I have produced six more feature films, including SUMMER OF '67, PROVIDENCE, and THE GOOD BOOK. Our movies have screened in theaters, festivals, and churches around the globe, aired on multiple television networks, and sold in stores and online outlets throughout English speaking countries. We've accumulated dozens of festival accolades including the “Shibboleth Award for Visionary Leadership in the Field of Christian Film Making”, numerous Best of Fest awards, and 4 ICVM Crown Awards. I'm passionate about storytelling and love entertaining and inspiring audiences with my writing, films, and speaking.
