2 SIMPLE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T JUST PICK AN OSCAR QUALIFYING FESTIVAL
1. Anyone with some bucks can schedule a qualifying screening through LAEMMLE’s in Los Angeles…
2. Only winners at these festivals get qualification.
So what does this mean to you? “Oscar Qualifying” film festivals are not better than any other festival because of that singular status… Dances With Films regularly qualifies it’s top two winners each year. Truth of the matter is – if you have a short film that you’re looking to get qualified through a film festival – you will have a far greater chance of doing just that at DWF. Why?… because we accept far fewer films into the festival than the normal hundreds that you’d be competing with at a typical short film festival. Getting into DWF… well, that’s another story. BTW – not only have we qualified many films – several DWF have actually been OSCAR nominated.
