The Dark Underbelly of the Festival Circuit

The Dark Underbelly of the Festival Circuit

Today I saw the above article on Indiewire

And then I just got an email from Festhome about some dodgy fake festivals that tried to hijack Festhome (who are being very decent about it, warning us, and I trust & respect them for that)

I first got suspicious when I saw a listing on WAB for the Canada International Film Fest in my home town of Vancouver yet I had never heard of it not had any of my family or friends back home (many of whom work in the industry in some form or other). And that’s cos it’s a night out in a casino, not a cinema (! – if you’re into that, OK but I am so NOT into that)

Now Indiewire has confirmed it.

What do you think? It kind of undermines my trust in Withoutabox.

I HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED BY THIS NEW ORGANISATION, UFFO WHICH MIGHT SHAKE THINGS UP A BIT: http://www.uffo.camp7.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1454459

and they have an excellent and FREE magazine you can get online
