Has anyone ever had their work screened at a film festival? If so, what was the experience like? I'd like to eventually submit my own student films to festivals, and I'd like to know a bit more about what I'm getting into!
I haven't because filmmaking isn't my niche, but I have a friend who has, and she submitted her work to just about every reputable festival she could for a couple of years before she got a bite. It only takes one "yes".
