What is a Film Festival you ask?
Film festivals give new talent an opportunity to shine, while also showcasing the work of already well-known and respected filmmakers. Festivals can range from huge, star-studded events, such as the Cannes festival in France or the Sundance Film Festival in the United States, to smaller festivals that may garner just a few hundred attendees.
Film festivals celebrate the art of film and they champion the artists who produce them, and provide an opportunity for unknown filmmakers to get their movies in front of a real live audience and to have their films reviewed by professional critics. Filmmakers whose movies get accepted into a festival also get valuable press attention and exposure to prospective agents and buyers, not to mention a possible award if they win.
Some are broad in scope -- they welcome a wide range of subject matter and film lengths. But other festivals are far more specialized: For example, they may accept just comedies, or Jewish films or films made only by female directors to name a few. The Wild Bunch Film Festival, is specific only to the western genre, and the first one of it’s kind in Oklahoma. But even though it's specific to westerns, there's a wide variety of sub-genres of westerns such as classical, contemporary, meat pie, spaghetti, horror and comedy.
All film festival has its own set of rules. Generally, filmmakers are given a deadline by which they need to submit their film(s). Some festivals accept films that have already been screened elsewhere; others require that films have not been broadcast anywhere prior to the festival.
Movies entered may range from shorts that are just a few minutes in length to full-length features that run two hours or more. Festivals sometimes accept one or more formats, including 35mm, 16mm, Super 8, VHS, Beta and/or DVD.
The Wild Bunch Film Festival, only accepts DVD or Blu-Ray format. Filmmakers pay an entry fee (anywhere from $20 for a five-minute short to sometimes $35 and up for a feature film) and fill out a form using filmfreeway describing their project. They may also be asked to submit a director bio, a film still, a synopsis and a list of production credits.
Not every film is right for every festival. Submitting a film to the wrong festival is likely to end in rejection. Before submitting a film for consideration, filmmakers need to research which festivals are most appropriate for their subject. If you're a filmmaker that's interested in making good westerns, you’ll have a good chance of getting into a western film festival such as The Wild Bunch Film Festival.
Film festivals are typically divided into categories. Categories may include: shorts, features, documentaries and animation. All movies submitted eventually are screened or viewed by the selection committee chosen by the festival, which is usually five or more unnamed people that take on the role of the jury. After the selections have been chosen, the festival organizers notify the filmmakers on a certain date, and the movies are seen by the audience at the film festival.
Even though The Wild Bunch Film Festival (TWBFF) may be small, it'll still pack a big punch with a three day event in Tishomingo, Oklahoma Sept 23/25, emceed by Branson’s own Ermal Williamson & Paula Erlene, “THE JOHN WAYNE SHOW”. http://www.johnwayneshow.com
