Festival Submission Service

So you’ve finally finished your animated short. What’s next? The Kaboom Festival Submission Service can help you with that next step after completing your precious project. Our goal is to get your animated short film screened at festivals worldwide and giving it the attention it deserves.

Whether you’re a seasoned filmmaker or a young novice we are here to help you.

How do we work?

1. We first set up a festival strategy: What would be a good place to premiere? Where can you meet the right people? What countries would welcome your film (it can be the entire world!), How many festivals you want us to submit your film to? How you feel about submission fees? Etc.

2. After determining the initial strategy we discuss pricing. We work with a transparent system where you pay per submission and per selection. Whether you have a generous budget or are on a shoestring, we will find a strategy that suits you.

3. We will help you to collect the items needed to carry out the submissions including: Film versions, EPKs, bios, head shots, film stills, synopses, dialogue lists and more.

4. We will manage all deadlines, festival correspondence, filling out forms and file transfers so that you can focus on your next project and rest assured that all festival deadlines are taken care of.

5. When your film is selected at a festival, we first let you know about it! And of course, we take care of sending the master copy and the promotional materials.
