How do you really get your film into a festival?

Are pitching forums useful?
And when can co-productions help and when can they hinder?

In this special, intimate session, Dorota Lech will discuss her learnings as a festival programmer and answer questions from the audience. Moderated by AIDC Conference Director Alice Burgin, schools involved will be able to have students have their questions answered, demystifying the international festival landscape.
