festivals Low Budget Feature Film Festivals


Hi, anyone know the best festivals to apply to for a sub £10,000 feature film by a first time director?

I am researching myself, but am a little overwhelmed by FilmFreeway's 6000+ results and countless more on Google.

Preferably UK based, but if they're decent I'll apply to anywhere. Thank you!
I would suggest that you research festivals according to how many features they show compared to how many shorts they show. A festival that shows 50% features and 50% shorts would be better for you than one that shows 100 films, but only 2 of them are features. You can research this by going to the festival's website, and looking at the list of what they ran last year.
