Screening the Films
All films will be screened at the bar, and tickets will be sold before the event. The film screening event is open to the general public. The venue is very intimate, allowing for films to be viewed on a very personal basis.
If your film is chosen to be screened, then you will receive some of the profits for the ticket sales of your film, allowing you to create some money while obtaining exposure.
The DNAFF is a very small film festival, but it does give filmmakers the opportunity to have their films viewed by a few hundred people. Since the DNA Film Festival is focused on little-known films, you will at least have a chance to have your film seen, which could lead to buzz.
If there is enough buzz about a film coming out of a film festival, it could get you an invitation from other larger film festivals, or you may be able to use that buzz to get you in to see some producers. Even though small film festivals do not get their due, they are a way to launch a career. You never know who will show up at these things.
One final suggestion is that usually reserved seating fills up fast. So, if you are interested in screening your own film if it is chosen, then you should reserve seating early.
