You need Withoutabox in your toolbox

I know nothing about film festivals. I know they take loads of effort and tremendous contributions from both filmmakers and programmers. When I spoke to various programmers from other major film fests during last year's Atlanta Film Festival, the depth and complexity of their job so overwhelmed me that I curled up into the fetal position and cried just hearing about it.

Of course, they probably knew about Withoutabox. I'm not even a film festival aficionado and I know that this thing must be a major boon to anyone who seriously works with film festivals, whether as a programmer, filmmaker, audience member, or distributor.

I know nothing about film festivals and I don't know how anyone would be able to work in film festivals without a robust website like this one.

Check it out.
