As the fall/winter festival season fast approaches, we present a special session with film publicist Annie Jeeves (Cinematic Red) who will offer tips for indie filmmakers as they prepare to launch their films into the festival circuit. Topics covered will include: the pros and cons of casting a name actor, the benefits of hiring a unit publicist, steps to take once you’re accepted into festivals, and what makes a good press kit and press release.
