The Trailer Film Festival 2010
Only trailers will be screened and the audience will be exclusively entertainment professionals.
This is an opportunity for filmmakers to get their work seen by companies like HBO, Universal, Fox and Lionsgate as well as smaller indie producers who are all looking for new ideas and talent. A complete list of attendees is on The Industry page.
Submit your sizzle reel whether you have just the script or if you have a completed film. Projects will be selected on merit alone and we will not ask for this information until after the selection process.
There will be a promotional DVD of the selected trailers which will be marketed for a year. On the day of the festival every company will receive a DVD of the featured trailers. If anyone cannot make the showcase their DVD will be mailed to them. The DVD will continue to be marketed for a year after the event. It will also be available online to accredited companies.
The date of the Trailer FIlm Festival has been changed from April 29th to June 10th to avoid clashing with pilot season.
