I’m a filmmaker that has made numerous successful short films play the festival circuit. I’ve recently created a web series and started entering festivals. Sadly, it has gotten roundly rejected. I’m totally confused and depressed from it. Mostly, because I believe I’ve got a good barometer to these things, but lately it’s not working! With all that, a couple of questions:
If a web fest might like one of the 3 episodes you enter, would they ever contact the filmmaker for possibly different episodes?
Is it worth it to try to enter different episodes, that might be funnier, or shorter or better to the same festivals the following year?
Do you recommend that the filmmaker put their series online before/during/after the festival circuit?
Thank you so much for your time and expertise!
