I've been to festivals big and small around the world, and this is absolutely the worst. I had scheduled several important guests including a Florida Senator and a House Rep and other characters from our documentary who were going to speak after the film. Daniel Springen told me after I'd confirmed their travel plans that we would have to BUY ONE-DAY FESTIVAL PASSES FOR THEM in order for them to be allowed in. After I told him we were pulling out of the festival based on this requirement, he replied CC'ing his lawyer in a vague attempt to intimidate. Make no mistake, Orlando Film Festival does not care at all about you or your film, and will only attempt to extract as much money from you as they can. They refused to even help provide filmmakers with PR contacts - and also attempt to get filmmakers to pay them to print posters. They also are the only festival I've ever seen that demands a submission fee after accepting a film. An absolutely shameful organization. Steer clear. Ty Around 3 years ago
