Well it's officially spooky season and here at ATL head quarters we're gearing up to release lots of horror themed content. First up though we're releasing a new post by Caitlin, documenting her first funded short film.

Producer’s Journal: Part 8
In this series of blog posts, Caitlin describes the process of putting together a cost report, ALBERT reporting and a film festival strategy.

This week sees the return of London Film Festival. Our After Film School Club caught up with senior short film advisor for LFF and the artistic director for LSFF, Philip Ilson. We spoke to him about what makes a film stand out to film festival programmers, mistakes filmmakers should avoid and why film festivals are so important to audiences and filmmakers alike.
