Gatekeeper QOTD: Sky Sitney (Silverdocs Documentary Festival)

Simon (POV): Any tips for emerging filmmakers who would love to see their film in Silverdocs?

Sky Sitney: Don’t think about getting into a festival, just make the best work you can with integrity and boldness. If you do that, the rest will follow.

And if that doesn’t work, here are a few tips:

Check that your DVD works
Actually read the criteria before submitting to make sure your film is eligible
And bribes don’t work (although I did like that pony!)
