"Believing that I know most of the festivals where my films might be appreciated, FestivalWhizz continuously surprised me with new festivals around the world, I never had heard of. The feature to target festivals according to your films factors, also helps to narrow the selection of festivals down and get an overview on your submission process."
Michaela Müller, Director of AIRPORT
