Creating reminders for film festival deadlines (screencast)

Creating Reminders for Film Festival Deadlines from Film Festival Secrets on Vimeo.

The first of a series of video tutorials on useful tools you can use to make your life on the festival circuit easier. With Sundance and Slamdance announcing their slates, a number of filmmakers are looking into their festival options for the rest of the year -- only to find that the deadlines for many Spring festivals have already gone by.

Don't miss any more deadlines! Use these free web tools to send yourself automated reminders when the dates approach.

This video is available to share on Vimeo and YouTube.

Great post Chris! One thing to add: if some ambitious website (cough, filmfestivalsecrets, cough) were to create a calendar with ALL the festival deadlines and notification dates and make it public, we'd all be able to view it.

Keep up the good work!

That's a project I've certainly thought about but it would be an ambitious one and would require constant updates. Plus you'd still want to keep your own calendar for the sake of tracking just the festivals you're interested in.
