Hi Mason, my name is Sam. I'm 26 and from Canada. When I was 23 I made a feature film in a similar situation to yours. I wrote, directed, produced, acted and edited in my film. It's called A Dog In Paris. We filmed in Toronto and Paris. I self-funded it with money from my day job. After years of applying to festivals like Atlanta I gave up and just released the movie on YouTube. I was wondering if you had any advice for a fellow filmmaker who just couldn't seem to make the festival circuit?

Congrats on your success!!!

Thank you! Yes it's very true! Did your distribution come directly from meeting someone at the festival? When applying to festivals were you using filmfreeway and just applying? Any special tricks/tips?
