Festivals do three things for aspiring filmmakers: deliver audiences for your film, connect you to the industry marketplace and provide learning opportunities for improving your craft. Because of this, we here at Videomaker love film festivals and try to support the ones we find the most worthy by passing out copies of Videomaker to attendees and/or providing subscriptions of Videomaker to festival entrants.
YouTube is the most popular online video platform for video makers and video watchers. This video-networking site receives over 800 million unique users each month and has become the second largest search engine, right below Google itself. The video watching audience (3 billion hours each month) is growing and so are the number videos uploaded every hour, minute and second.
