Edmonton International Film Festival

Edmonton, Canada / September 26-October 5, 2019 / edmontonfilmfest.com 

Competition for a slot is high at Edmonton, where 128 films were selected from 4,860 submissions. Edmonton pays particular attention to projection. As the producers explain, films “receive white glove treatment and your film will be projected in the best possible light.” Canadian premieres in 2018 included Ross Whitaker’s Between Land and Sea and Jesse James Miller’s Rabbit. The festival is an attractive venue for gaining exposure since Edmonton attracts six to eight commissioning editors from Canadian broadcasters with offices in Edmonton.

    I like this type of information because you always can learn some interesting new knowledge and at the same time revive the knowledge you already know.

      I can assure you that the Beaufort International Film Festival held each February in Beaufort, SC is well worth the entry fee. See the recap here -https://vimeo.com/321820933
