We Didn't Post About Your Film On Social Media, Because You Didn't Provide Links With Your Submission.
We get emails like this from Filmmakers and Screenwriters almost every day. They see our social media marketing campaign and wonder why they got "left out." It's pretty simple really. You didn't add the links to your FilmFreeway submission form. I recently wrote a short book with tips and advice for filmmakers that are submitting their creative work to the Film Festival Circuit. A small investment, goes a long way. Do yourself a favor. Download this book and avoid common mistakes that filmmakers make every day when submitting to Film Festivals. Strengthen your submission and get ahead of thousands of filmmakers that are submitting their work on FilmFreeway. Below, is the first paragraph of Chapter 9.
Chapter 9: Why Do Film Festivals Love Submissions With A Social Media Presence?
"Social media is a free marketing tool for your Film Festival Submission. Here is how you use it. I strongly advise that you list a Facebook Page and Instagram profile on your submission form. It can be something simple like “Last Train To Everwood Documentary Film” or @LastTrainToEverWood. Some of you might be asking, “why do this? I don’t like social media, I don’t need social media, there aren’t any distributors looking for films on social media.” I’ve heard it all. There are public perceptions, misinformation, and quite frankly, old school thinking, when it comes to social media. For years, I thought that Twitter was just a place to post a picture of my lunch. And for some people, that is what it is. For a filmmaker, it’s a place to post updates about the progress of your film. And also, a forum for people to “like” and comment on your film. The cast and crew of your film usually split-up, and head in different directions after a project. Having a simple Facebook Page for your work, is a great way to keep them all connected and get updates, no matter where the film industry takes them. In many ways, people these days, rely more on social media, then they do on email. It simply cannot be ignored by filmmakers anymore, in my opinion." - Would you like to read more?
