What is FILM FESTIVAL MASTERY?

Film Festival Mastery is a comprehensive coaching program & training system developed by Slamdance co-founder Jon Fitzgerald and filmmaker & financier Justin Giddings

We saw so many of our talented friends who couldn't seem to crack the festival circuit despite having incredible films. With Jon's experience as a festival director (Slamdance, AFI, Santa Barbara) and Justin's experience of screening at nearly 100 film festivals, we set out to provide the gold standard in festival training so that good films - like yours - get screened.

Who is FILM FESTIVAL MASTERY For?

Film Festival Mastery is geared towards any industry professional whose career would be positively impacted by a successful festival run of their film.

Our mentees range from established filmmakers with independent studios to new faces fresh out of film school. We also teach producers, writers, actors, cinematographers, and even a film school or two!
