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.

Film Festival Secrets

What about you? What have you learned to do or not to do when it comes to film festivals?

Written by Sharon Wilharm

I'm a female filmmaker, blogger, and speaker with over a decade of industry experience. I'm passionate about visual storytelling. I know firsthand that you don't have to spend a fortune to make a good movie, and you can tell a powerful story without ever saying a word. My desire with Faith Flix is to educate, inspire, and encourage my fellow filmmakers. I know that Christian filmmakers can make better movies, but it takes education and hard work. I'll help with the education and leave you to do the hard work.
