Online Film Festivals are the latest trend which is the favourite platform for every budding filmmaker, producer and writer. It gives a platform and opportunity to filmmakers around the globe to participate in events occurring at the other end of the globe and even get appreciated by the host through the medium of certificates and laurels and even trophies if they win the festival race. This concept is really thrilling as someone sitting in India can participate in a festival running in Australia or anywhere else and the movies are judged by the jury of that particular place. This has become a connector on a global level.
Many film festival submission platforms like Filmfreeway, WFCN, Click for festivals, festhome etc are running online since a long time now and many film festivals are enlisted here which successfully organise different seasons monthly or yearly. These festivals even announce winners and award them which creates a good filmmaker and film festival internal relationship. This concept has acted as a boon for online film festivals and several independent filmmakers who want to showcase their work worldwide and want nothing but appreciation in return.
Online Film Festivals encourage filmmakers to create more good films and gives them a sense of encouragement that no matter what happens these film festival submission platforms are going to exist and stand by the filmmakers through thick and thin. The online submission platforms understand that how much important is this relationship between the filmmakers and film curators and they act as a bridge between them. Online Film Festivals have for sure worked as a blessing for many.
