Film festivals are a vital outlet to not only meet or view the work of
filmmakers, but allow you to branch out into wider circles within the
independent film community. And best of all, there are hundreds
worldwide every year in almost every corner of the world. Try
volunteering as a ticket seller, coordinator, or assisting to any
extent with organization. There may be no better way to make contacts
and meet other up-and-comers in the industry, no matter how big or
small the festival.
