Hi, it’s Shala from Life Between Films. I started this feature earlier this year when I volunteered to act as the film festival contributor for LAMB and share some of my knowledge and experiences regarding film festivals around the US. I have had fun with it, and I hope at least someone out there has enjoyed reading. Currently, ‘The Festival Experience’ highlights a few of the major festivals around North America (Sundance, Tribeca, TIFF) in a number of ways:
*Festival Guides: an overview of information and tips on how to successfully navigate these film festivals (see: A Guide to the Tribeca Film Festival)
*Special Events: ways you can participate in special events and screenings associated with these festivals no matter where you are (see: Tribeca Film Festival – Special Events)
*One Blogger, One Day: a collaboration project to chronicle the festival from the perspective of film fans in attendance (see: One Blogger, One Day @ Tribeca)
What else would you like to see in ‘The Festival Experience’? All suggestions are welcomed. I would really like to make this a feature that is both informative and fun to read. Please leave me your thoughts below or email me –firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, as my experience is limited to US festivals, if there is anyone out there with insight into a number of ex-US festivals and would like to contribute, I would love to co-write this feature with you so please contact me. Thanks!
