If not, I can guarantee you someone else is with theirs, and the competition is stiff.  Most filmmakers and screenwriters submit their projects without giving it a fighting chance in the festival circuit.  Thousands upon THOUSANDS of creatives spend hard earned money to compete in this industry, but what makes your project stand out?  Is it as tight as it can be? 

I would argue that no project is ever perfect (or ‘done’), and many writers and directors will be pushing and pulling day-of, but in the festival circuit, you are NOT given a second shot to make a first impression.  So what’s the impression you’re going to make? 

DaVinci International Film Festival (DIFF) is proud to announce an all-new service for our independent creative community in effort to give them the best possible shot in the festival circuit (and beyond).  “PreFest Services” at DIFF offers professional consultation for your final polishes on screenplay, film edit, sound, color, and score.   Our Consultants are professional screenwriters (WGA), produced and award-winning filmmakers, A-list colorists, and Emmy winning composers.  We’ve got you covered.  To learn more about our PreFest Service email us at: 

As filmmakers, we COMPLETELY understand the grind to lock picture, but if you’re reading this, then you’re nearly there, so let’s get it there.  D you need to shave 5-10 minutes off your short film, tighten some dialogue or get professional eyes and ears on coloring or sound?  That’s where we come in!
