Submitting a filmmaker comment to your film

Adding a filmmaker comment promotes your film to the "Filmmakers on their Films" shelf which is a highly trafficked area of the video portal. Suppliers or rights owners can also add comments about the films they represent.

To add a comment, please include a word document as part of your file delivery for the publishing team. 

Tips for strong filmmaker comments:

We recommend a conversational tone, as though you are talking to a small group of professors/students. The more personal the better. eg "I made this film because...." OR "My hope for this film is ...." OR "I often get asked 'what happened next?'"

Here is one example:

JenniferThe Representation Project

I made Miss Representation because we live in a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, and the collective message the media send to our young women and men is that a woman's value lies in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. I wanted to shed a light on this problem, because if we don't question that thinking and work to change it, we are going to continue to be marginalized.
