    If you’re an indie filmmaker who takes their career seriously, then Festigious is definitely a festival that you should consider. This along with Los Angeles Film Awards could be considered the most prestigious if not the best run, best organized and the most highly contented awards for indie filmmakers.

    A thing that sets this festival apart is their selection of high-quality films. Once you have been officially selected you should feel satisfied that they have taken the time to review your film and truly base its entry on high-quality merit. Their caliber of selections is extremely high so just getting into this festival is a high honor.

    Another massive point of difference is their online presence and support for the filmmakers. They really do care about getting you out there and maximizing your exposure. They are heavily active on social media and take the time to create amazing looking graphics which then you can share and feel proud to show off.

    I highly recommend this festival if you wish to further your career because a Laurel from these guys is a career boosting asset to proudly behold to producers, industry professions, friends, and family.
