How To Get Press For Your Film & How To Communicate With The Press
Ever wondered how filmmakers get press for their films, especially on a low budget? Nervous to reach out to magazines/newspapers? No clue where to start, or how to address them? How can you be more successful at getting them to write about (and promote) your film?
Let's talk about what types of coverage are often offered to filmmakers, and how to decide what coverage is best for you. 'll be covering some what to dos and what not to dos in getting press and communicating with the press - and how having a game plan in approaching them could really help. I'll share my insights as editor in chief of an online film magazine - I'm the gatekeeper to my team of 100+ writers, but get over a hundred requests for reviews per week. I'll share what catches my eye and what doesn't, et cetera. I'm sure I'll also share some fun anecdotes of good and not so good examples of ways filmmakers have communicated with me and our team... And bring your questions!
Class will be taking place in West Hollywood!
