Gatekeeper QOTD: Damon Cardasis (L.E.S* Film Festival)

Q: When at a festival, how do I maximize the experience for my career (i.e. building relationships with the right people etc.)

Damon Cardasis (Co-Creator, The LES Film Festival): ” Don’t rely on the festival to do everything for you. It’s up to you to network and push your film. If you’re travelling to the festival, try to set up meetings wherever you are. Go to other films and reach out to filmmakers whose work you like. There are usually Q+A’s and drinks as well as panels. Go to as much as you can and introduce yourself. Everyone likes meeting future collaborators and friends. If you’re shy, pretend you’re not.”
