Dubious Film Festival Form

Dubious Film Festival Form is aimed at help you, help me, help independent filmmakers.


Independent film festivals offer smaller production companies and filmmakers the chance to shine amongst more established, mainstream peers. Creatives widely agree that film festivals are part of their event calendar, whether submitting a film or simply going along as an audience member. But, the main detractor to this are the people and organisations that set themselves up as a money-making machine running a pseudo/fake/scam film festival.


We have a shared responsibility to help the vulnerable and needy. We must all shame and name these organisations. If we do this, we can create an environment that is conducive to being creative and supportive. So fill in the Dubious Film Festival Form
