Online Film Festivals


Film Festivals

Film festivals are great opportunities to view films that you wouldn't necessarily catch at your local multiplex. With the help of the Internet, you can investigate the many types of film festivals. Once you've located your niche, check schedules, purchase tickets, or even watch films online. You'll also learn how to submit your own work to festivals and keep up with film festival news. The only thing you'll have to find on your own is a tight black turtleneck.

Online Film Festivals

Online film festivals are film festivals which are held entirely online. Usually, films are shown for a certain amount of time, and viewers can vote on the films they have watched. Not all online film festivals are competitive though; some exist purely for the joy of spreading knowledge about film to others. There are online film festivals happening at all times of the year, and the best part is that, as long as you have a working Internet connection, you're guaranteed a ticket.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • To find online festivals which show the types of films you enjoy, use a search engine and enter keywords such as "horror online film festivals" or "online animated film festivals."
  • Viewing films online works best if you have a high-speed (cable or DSL) Internet connection. Films tend to be less than 20 minutes, but they still require a lot of bandwidth to view them properly.
  • Some online festivals are free, and some are not. Remember though, even when you have to pay, you can watch a far greater number of films than you might have been able to at film festival in a city, for instance.
