What’s the role of a film festival given recent changes in digital distribution and exhibition? And what’s the role of a film festival for filmmakers in this changed climate of narrowing release windows and cross-platform releasing? This workshop explores different kinds of film festivals and how they can benefit filmmakers in the areas of publicity, networking, and release strategy. Underpinning this conversation is the at-times mystified question of how film festivals pick films. Brian Hu, Artistic Director of the San Diego Asian Film Festival, talks about film selection and film festival strategy from a programmer’s perspective.
