I just finished interviewing the CEO of TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and I thought you’d wanna see it…
- 10:22 – His tips on networking and getting connected (no you don’t have to go to parties and networking events)
- 37:22 – Is there a point in submitting to smaller festivals?
- 56:48 – Curt’s mathematical proof of why Hollywood is dying
- 1:04:27 – Tips for getting into film festivals like TIFF (Should you submit late? Early? etc.)
And how you can apply those same lessons.
Keep taking action.
Director / Writer / Producer
You know how Eminem is the Rap God? Well up North there in Canada, Curt's referred to as Toronto's "Film God." Studying mathematics and physics, his switch to filmmaking has given him a unique eye where he sees how things are traditionally done in the industry and goes "Um.. WTF." With a focus on results, and not just "festivals", Curt has taken cues from the startup world as well as deep psychology to help other independent filmmakers get connected, get funded, and make money with their films.
