So far my graduate film has successfully made it into a grand total of 9 film festivals. I can wholeheartedly say that I am continuously shocked at the impact my film is having and how much people are enjoying something that I put my heart and soul into.
Why am I looking for funding: I want to put my grad film Christine @ 11 forward for even more film festivals. Lots of these festivals have a submission fee, which sadly, in my post-grad life I am unable to cover on my own.
Festivals with prizes: If my film is lucky enough to be selected to win then all the prize money will go to the Alzheimer's society.
Why festivals: Submitting my work to film festivals helps to give me the much-needed exposure and industry links that I will need to hopefully catapult my career in the creative industry.
