    Can anyone recommend the best festival to pitch a political corruption book for adaptation to documentary?

    The list is great! If you are an independent filmmaker, looking at getting their feet wet, Cannes Short Film Corner is also a great spot to showcase your project. You also get to attend the Cannes Film Festival and Marche Du Film. Feel free to reach me if you have any other questions related to Cannes Court Metrage
