    Thessa Mooij (Silversalt PR – New York): Festival Promotion and Film Publicity

    Making a film of any genre or length requires a very high level of perseverance and commitment – passion even. As a filmmaker you find yourself juggling a wide variety of details, overseeing departments and making creative decisions. You and your team are working tirelessly towards what seems to be the end goal – completion of the film. Now the film is ready to be shown to the world, but how?

    Many filmmakers and producers – even experienced ones – are focused on production without thinking about festival promotion and publicity from the start of their project. As a result they play catch up once the film is ready. But by creating a strategy for festival promotion and publicity from the outside, it’s possible for even a first short film to maximize its potential once it’s finished.   

    This lecture provides you with the tools to create such a strategy, so that you are ready to promote the film as soon as it’s finished. Even without the services of a professional publicist, who usually comes on board of feature-length films for festival premiers, you can work at increasing the chances for festival audiences and press to see your film – especially by including social media components to your outreach.

    The lecture includes examples of successful campaigns and promotional materials as well as the possibility to ask questions about festival submissions, how to work with festivals and the publicity process – whether you do your own promotion or work with a professional publicist.

    Thessa Mooij (Silversalt PR – New York)

    With a background in journalism (Screen International, The Hollywood Reporter) and film programming (Goethe-Institut London) Thessa Mooij is a multi-lingual, New York-based publicist whose company Silversalt PR handles campaigns for festival premieres in North America and Europe, theatrical releases and awards season.

    Some of her high profile clients include Spike Lee, Bérénice Bejo, Rutger Hauer and Michelle Yeoh. Her Oscar campaign for Finland’s CONCRETE NIGHT resulted in the Spotlight Award for the film’s DoP Peter Flinckenberg from the American Society of Cinematographers.
