So you got involved in making films and now you would like your film to be seen. There are many ways to get your film in front of the eyes of the public, but it’s definitely no easy task. Even with all the social media, YouTube, and the rest of the Internet, it can be tough to get your film seen. However, sometimes it takes a little more old tradition, than new technology. Film festivals have been around for decades and according to History Channel , the first Cannes International Film Festival was held in 1939. But where you can go if you are a new filmmaker? There are filmmakers from all walks of life, from all corners of the world. Just like in any field of entertainment, it takes lots of patience, skill, dedication and hard work to break into the field. And for a young or beginning filmmaker, the task of getting your work out there can seem daunting. But which ones are for beginners?
