I'd like to suggest adding a new category to the message board: film festivals.

Lots of potentially useful topics could go into this category...

  • Upcoming festival deadlines.

  • Which events are (or aren't) stopmo friendly.

  • The pros and cons of submitting to festivals.

  • The relationship between festivals and distribution deals.

  • How to improve your chances of getting into a festival.

  • Where to see SMA animators' films on the big screen.

What do you think?

Great idea.  Done!

Could a list of stopmo friendly festivals be culled from the board and placed in the Links section at some point? I went there when browsing the new site to see if stopmo festivals were listed but they aren't right now.

Really good idea, maybe people could share their knowledge of film festivals in their respective countries. Then we can compile a global list from that...

This has already been posted under Uk Festivals thread but this site caters for International Animation festivals   http://www.animation-festivals.com/
