Film Festival Strategy PACKAGE

We understand that it can be both scary and exhilarating to share your film with a public audience.

We also think it's courageous as hell.

And that's why we want to help you make the most of your time on the festival circuit (and beyond).

You'll work directly with Smarthouse co-founder Brad Wilke, a film festival veteran with over 12+ years of direct experience in the festival world. Prior to taking over as the Artistic Director of the Portland Film Festival, Brad programmed feature films for the Seattle International Film Festival, where he launched their much-lauded Catalyst section and SIFF's first screenwriting competition. Brad has sat on numerous festival juries and panels, and also served as a prescreener for the Sundance Film Festival.
