One of our goals is to provide music video directors with tools that can hopefully make navigating this crazy career a little bit easier! This is just a start, but if there’s any resources you would like to have that we can provide, send us an email at


We want to help you get your music videos into festivals! One way we thought we could help is by providing a master list of film festivals who program music videos.
