LOL, I wrote something like this in the User Films section and tried to get it made into a sticky, I had my whole feature and everything up for discussion, but no dice. Glad yours got up. Mine was more of a tutorial, but said some of the same things. Mine is here for indy filmmakers who want to jump off into the deep end, but would rather learn from someone else mistakes (mine) versus making them. As for festivals I think AOF and Slamdance are good for indies.

Is it time for my old Beethoven story? I believe it is:
L. V. Beethoven was once approached by a proud father asking if Mr. Beethoven could please teach his son to compose sonatas. "How old is your son?" asked the master. "10" the proud father replied. "Then, he should probably wait a few years". "But you composed sonatas when you were nine!" the proud father protested. "Correct" said Beethoven, "But I didn't have to ask how."
So, I can see the attraction in submitting your first feature, but unless you're Beethoven, don't be too disappointed.

I find your analogy a bit exaggerated. Why choose Formula 1? I mean, you say Formula Ford instead of Formula 1, and that's a reasonable question I've heard many times. I don't think most people you are analoging to are expecting to make a Hollywood blockbuster on their first attempts, they're looking to make small independent low or no-budget films. So, say SCCA instead of FIA or FOCA; say Formula Ford or Showroom Stock or Street Prepared instead of Formula 1. Go to an SCCA meeting... it's exactly like what you've said, not at all outlandish.
I mean, most people here are thinking autocross or road rally, not Grand Prix or Indy or Paris-Dakkar...

And it's exactly why I'm done with this one. You two really need to get jobs and out of your mother's basements. You can't fix stupid. And I don't have time for stupid." -swoopie
