A Template for Creating Your Own Film Listing

The end goal of any filmmaker is to have their film seen. For this there are various resources such as festivals and filmnights, and filmmakers are able to accomplish submitting to festivals and filmnights with the help of some wonderful websites specializing in that. There are also media promotion companies which specialize in getting presskits out to reviewers.
