Social media’s power is that it introduces short film makers to film lovers and fellow film makers from all over the world.
It helps in film making and the creative arts to spread generosity of spirit where it exists. Genuine people with passion will reach out and say keep going and connect and not cut you down.
But what is the value of social media for promoting a short film? Are responses momentary reactions that fade or are they indicative of something stronger? Is it possible to attract the attention of festival curators to the kind of film they are looking for? I’ll soon be looking for some dates with compatible festivals. Must have a love of story and a big heart. So many, so varied, so cool. Where to start?
