Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

Sometimes that is the case, as it was here. Sometimes, the film that wins takes everyone's heart. We're not all built the same fortunately. :-) If we were... then we'd all love Star Wars obviously. ;-)

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

Don't hold back Tim! ;-) I LOVED 'I Am'. I loved everything that you have questioned about it. The story of a mirror which has fallen for the woman that stares into it every day. The sadness that is reflected in her life is also reflected in the mirror itself... it so wants to be with her. The lead'...

Re: Crowd Funding - HELP

Sadly, we didn't quite make our target of £20k via Kickstarter... although we did reach an admirable £16K! But alas, with Kickstarter, if you don't reach your target, you get ZERO money, and no one is charged. With that in mind, we are changing tactic and changing platform. So we're using IndieGoGo ...

Re: Crowd Funding - HELP

Hi Ned, Without going in to too much detail on the Budget. The rough breakdown is; Crew - 8% (majority of the crew are working for free) Cast - 28% (Equity Rates. This is quite high because we have a Hollywood actor involved) Location - 10% Accommodation for Cast & Crew - 10% Camera Equipment, Light...

Re: While you wait for BIAFF results ...

As someone who enters many film festivals around the world, Judges at BIAFF AND runs his own Film Festival... I have to say that BIAFF is unique in that it gives feedback to EVERY entrant. Some festivals you can pay extra for written feedback, but pretty much all do not provide any feedback whatsoev...
