films also have the opportunity for Feedback: The one element
most festivals ignore.
Instead of paying submission fees and getting nothing in return,
EVERYONE who submits to DWBFF will receive one of two benefits: Either
1): your film is already competition calibre, and gets accepted as an
Official Selection, OR 2): you?€™ll receive a letter outlining exactly
what is keeping it from being accepted. If you can make corrections,
you resubmit for FREE.
While most festivals never give any explanation at all for a rejection,
we strive to help filmmakers improve their festival acceptance rates
and therefore, their marketability.
DWBFF is run as a web-based competition, instead of a traditional film
festival: 100% of our effort and investment goes into finding a market
for you, not into renting theatres unless it is dictated by the
distributors to further test the market. New distribution company
connections are actively petitioned.
Finally, you can rest assured that our co-founder is a proud Committee
Member for the Universal Film & Festival Organization (UFFO.ORG).
The UFFO is a non-profit operating out of the U.K., which exists for
"Promoting best business practices for film festivals.?€� This guarantees
that your film will benefit from a fair and thorough judging process.
