I daydream about giving acceptance speeches at film festivals. I try to sound grateful and surprised even though I’ve rehearsed the speech 50 times. Should I wear a suit and tie? Or maybe that cool hoodie that makes me look skinny?
Those days may be coming to an end, however. The times, they are a changing. Festivals won’t disappear overnight, but I foresee some big changes coming in the independent world that will at least make hauling your film to festivals unnecessary.
