Things I've learnt about festivals:
- Don't rely on just a message from your film submission service. Even if it tells you your film is accepted, it might never show up in that festival's program.
- Careful when "invited" to a festival by email. In most cases this is a festival which will raise a submission fee. Some will give you a voucher for free submission, if you ask.
- Extra careful for a festival which you haven't submitted to, but are told to be accepted anyway. This particular festival had sent some mails asking for financial support, then suddenly my film was "in", now I'm still waiting for more information, like an adress to send the film to.
- About film submission services: read their ToS very carefully. There are companies out there which disguise as film submission service, but want to broadcast your film online. There are companies out there which disguise as distributor, but will only submit your film to festivals - which I can do myself, and cheaper, thank you.
- Fesival and service web sites submission forms: if they don't work, try at least one different browser (a new one). Some have such a cutting edge design that it will only work on one certain smart phone brand while standing in a tub of lard on Piccadilly Circus at midnight during months without R.

Thank you for this useful list. May I ask you what submission service you're using? I only heard mixed reviews from "Aug und Ohr" so far.

I realized this might be useful for others, so I started a thread here:
