Brewski414Anyone know if any promoter is putting on a film fest in either Milwaukee or Minneapolis area? Long gone MWSFF (Midwest Ski Film Festival) use to be the crew to put on a good show but haven't for 6 years now...Hoping someone is stepping up to the plate again.
Why don't you organize it instead of waiting for someone else to do it? 10 steps to success below
1.) Call and/or email ski film companies to setup licensing deals for their tour. They're always looking for local ppl to show their movies.
2.) Call venues to setup rental deal (college ski clubs can sometimes get free venue rentals on campus).
3.) Secure sponsors to help pay cost of licensing movies and venue (ski shops, local ski company reps, etc.).
4.) Reserve venue, license movies, and setup after party spot.
5.) Build website, social channels and respective online events to promote festival.
6.) Promote, promote, promote and then promote some more (online ads, hang posters, tell people to their face, sell raffle tix for prizes).
7.) Ask "pro skiers" to attend.
9.) Profit and become local hero.
10.) Rinse and repeat next Fall, continue being local hero.
As added bonus this shit looks good on college applications and job resumes.
