Get on the Filmmakers’ Map: get in touch with filmmakers working on their first film now
I have been wanting to make a Filmmakers’ Map for quite some time and I’m very happy to finally introduce it. The filmmakers’ map is a map of indie filmmakers who are currently working on their first feature film, and that you can get in touch with.
There is no better way to learn about filmmaking than by following and actively participating into a film’s journey. The list of films below are first feature film in various genre, that are being nurtured, created, financed, written as I wrote, from readers of the site and thus peers.
Intrigued by a title? Discovering that a film is taking place in your town? Planning to shoot within the same genre? Just wanting to reach out and offer help? Check the list below, and contact the filmmakers!
If you are actively working on making your first feature film, email me so I can add you on the map. Based on the dozens of email I’ve recently received, I will add now: short films won’t be accepted, feel free to say hi and bye in your email, I like kindness, and be patient, your film will get on the map.
Since I published the first map, I’ve received many submissions and decided to organise the map by alphabetical order, based on the country the film is shot.
