HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR FESTIVAL


CONTACTING THE DISTRIBUTORS

Contact the U.S. distributor of each film and arrange for the reservation, shipping, and payment of projection rights for all films, including those shown in digital. Be sure to contact the distributor before finalizing your program dates.


 

RAISING ADDITIONAL FUNDS

The Tournées Film Festival grant is fixed at $2,200 and may not cover all of your expenses. In addition to the rental fees, you will be responsible for the shipping costs. In this brochure, we have quoted typical pricing for each film, but fees for screening rights are negotiable. Fees may depend on format, the size of the screening room, whether admission will be charged, etc. Check with each distributor and make sure to mention your participation in Tournées Film Festival in your negotiation.


 

PUBLICIZING YOUR SCREENINGS

Social networks such as Facebook or Twitter are a good way to promote the festival: creating a group or an event on such platforms gives people regular updates regarding the festival.

Follow us on Facebook (facebook.com/TheTourneesFestival).

ALL PUBLICITY MATERIALS MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING CREDIT LINE:
“Tournées Film Festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation and Highbrow Entertainment.”

• HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES
Participants can log into the promotional tools page to find high-resolution images that can be used to promote the films in their festival.

You will also find on the promotional tools page free-standing jpegs of the program’s logo and that of our sponsors. These have been provided for those participants who wish to create their own promotional documents.
