Coronavirus Indie Film Q&A – IFH Tribe Questions Answered
It has been a crazy few days in the world, my friends. With film productions being shut down around the world, movie theaters sitting empty, and film festivals/events canceling because of the Coronavirus pandemic it might feel like the end of days. Hell, there’s even a locust outbreak in Africa, no seriously!
I even canceled my Make Your Movie Bootcamp out of concern for my students. I wanted to do a follow-up episode updating the tribe on what is going on, how it will affect them and what they can do during these insane times. I also answer questions I’ve been getting from the IFH Tribe. I go over:
- Should I submit to film festivals now?
- If I had a screening for my film what do I do?
- Can I get my money back from SXSW and other film festivals for canceling?
- Can movie theater chains take this hit?
- Will some studios and distribution companies be able to weather this storm?
- Tips on what to do while staying home
There’s a lot of fear and uncertainty out there. Stay informed and stay safe. Sit back, pull up another stiff drink and take a listen.
