Film Festival Conference, Hollyshorts!

How to Build an Audience w/ Social Media & Hustle – Hollyshorts! Film Festival Conference

In today’s episode, I wanted to share the talk I did with RB Botto (Stage 32) at the Hollyshorts! Film Festival Conference 2017. RB and I spoke about a lot of different topics covering, crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, building an audience, self-distribution, and much more. There’s truly one knowledge bomb dropped after another. I thought the IFH Tribe could get a lot out of it.

Also, if you are in the LA area This is Meg is LA Priemering at the TCL Chinese Theater, I know crazy! We are the closing night feature film of the Hollyshorts! Film Festival. The screening is August 19th, 8pm. For discount tickets read below. The entire cast will be there and it’ll be a fun time! Hope to see you there.

    Great discussion again, some great little tips

    Love the post, good tips, but one little thing – you CAN get your film on iTunes without the help of an aggregator like Distribber. Netflix and Hulu, not so much, but iTunes and Amazon, definitely.
