A Documentary Producer's Guide to Festivals & Markets

Panel The art of navigating local and international festivals and markets and getting your documentary noticed.

Why should a producer consider submitting their documentary to a festival or market? How might it benefit them and their career? And why are some filmmakers successful at getting their films accepted while others are not? A panel of experienced producers and festival organisers discuss this important but often little understood aspect of documentary-making, via case studies of two recent successful Australian feature documentaries, Martha and Le Champion.
