Fest Agent Services

Identify the relevant Festivals, use my influencial potential where relevant
Pitch festivals massively with a partnership strategy: give the film a submission fee waiver against promotion on our website. Big save on submission costs.
Pitch individually festivals in my network, partner festivals.
Use your filmfreeway or WaB film profile to submit internationally.

I will ask festivals for a Screening fee for your film (in some cases festivals can offer a licence fee when they program the film)
I will suggest personal attendance (some festivals might want to invite you when they liked the film and program it, in those case they usually do not offer screening fee)
Cash generated documented on an excel sheet with screening dates, amounts and payments cashed in. Your share will be sent via paypal once  the fee has been paid

My 2020 line up of BEST FOR FESTS

Films I have curated for festivals

It s been three years since Rob Stewart passed: RIP Rob

In Memory of Rob Stewart
December 28, 1979 – January 31, 2017
Bruno Chatelin, festival agent for Rob Stewart since 2003.
In 2018, using footage Rob shot for Sharkwater Extinction, the California Legislature passed a bill to ban drift net fishing, which killed not only sharks, but sea turtles, whales, sea lions and many more marine mammals.

In 2019, the Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation was formed to continue his mission. The Foundation launched the SharkFree campaign to work with cosmetic and personal care product companies in an effort to remove shark liver oil, known as squalene, from their products

As of 2019, Canada banned the import and export of shark fin. Canada was the largest importer of shark fins outside of Asia.

In January 2020, New Jersey became the latest state to sign a law banning the sale of shark fins. More than 85 countries have banned shark finning, and the U.S. has banned the sales of shark fin in 17 states and territories.

CITES votes to protect Makos in 2019, as well as 18 species of rays and sharks by adding them to their endangered list. The warm-blooded Makos are the fastest sharks in the world.

In November 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act, which would prohibit the sales of shark fins, and the bill has moved on to a vote in the Senate.
