Editorial Reviews

Clarissa Cruz
[A] nifty tome....primarily it's a straight-up collection of ...tips...
Entertainment Weekly
Library Journal
American independent cinema has skyrocketed in the 1990s, with venues like the Sundance Film Festival launching critical and box-office hits. Gore has covered this emerging market in his magazine, Film Threat, and as a judge at festivals throughout the country. Here, he provides a how-to guide for film festival applicants. The first section covers such topics as publicity strategies, festival politics, and party etiquette. The second section comprises short interviews with festival veterans. The third section supplies entries on over 800 festivals. Each entry is divided into succinct headings, including "Application Process Tips," "Odds of Getting Accepted," "Best Bars," and "Travel Tips." By turns breezy and cynical, jaded and trite, Gore's guide reflects the tendencies of American independent cinema as a whole. And like his purview, it is quite interesting overall. Prospective filmmakers should purchase this title, but the extremely narrow focus of Gore's guide should give libraries pause.--Neal Baker, Earlham Coll., Richmond, IN
Booknews
A guide for film makers, rather than viewers. Gore suggests how to market and sell a film at over 600 film festivals worldwide; how to get a film accepted; what to do after acceptance<-->press kit, party, closing the deal, and so on. The second edition contains new interviews and an extended case study of The Blair Witch Project; the first seems to have been published about 1990. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    FROM THE PUBLISHER

    Learn the secrets of successfully marketing and selling your film at over 600 film festivals worldwide. Author Chris Gore reveals how to get a film accepted and what to do after acceptance, from putting together a press kit to putting on a great party to actually closing a deal. Gore includes new interviews as well as a new chapter that details a case study of the most successful independent film of all time, The Blair Witch Project. Easy to flip through, yet densely packed with information, this book will provide an insider perspective valuable to those who attend or enter festivals. QUOTE: 'Ever since Chris Gore's book was published, I have used it in my classes to teach both undergraduate and graduate level film courses. Students respond extremely well to the style that the book is written in and the pragmatic information that the book provides. This book covers a critical area in film school curriculum to prepare students for the world of festivals.' ¿Steve Montal, American Film Institute. QUOTE: 'Aspiring Todd Solondzes simply must pick up this treatise on schmoozing, bullying, and otherwise weaseling one¿s way into the cinematic madness known as film festivals.' ¿Entertainment Weekly
