Film Festival News, Reviews, and Forums


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.

Film Festival News, Reviews, and Forums

Although official film festival sites provide plenty of information, sometimes it can be more fun to get your news from an alternative source. Not only will blogs and forums keep you posted on new developments and daily gossip, but you can also benefit from reading the opinions of film fans like yourself. You might even consider posting some of your own.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Many film festivals have a "Forum" or "Blog" page that will likely have reviews of films currently being shown at the festival as well as reviews of the festival itself.
  • Remember that sometimes, people write on blogs only when they have something to complain about. Try to read from a number of sources to get an accurate take on the subject.
  • It's easy to contribute to a blog or forum-you usually just have to pick a username and password, submit your e-mail, and you're set. It's almost always free to post and read blogs.
  • The people in charge of running the festivals often read the blogs and forums for valuable feedback about how the festival went; so if you have something to say, don't hold back. Your comment might make a difference in next year's festival.
