Chapter 2: Are Your Contact Details Accurate? A Daily Common Mistake (First Paragraph)

"You wouldn’t believe how many filmmakers are unreachable. When it comes to the relationship between the Film Festival Submitter and the Film Festival Event Team, communication is important. You’d be shocked by how many submissions that we receive, without a phone number or a working email address.
