There are thousands of film festival held all over the world, throughout the year. Most of them host amateur and unknown films rather than feature the big names that you read about at the larger film festivals.
The thing is that the “cream” of these independants tend to “rise to the top,” so that the better ones get heard about and discussed. Eventually, some of these films get invited to show with the bigger productions. The fact is that very few of them get that far, but, they have to start someplace.
Do some research about getting entry to some of these local, specialized festival. Get it shown, get it seen, and, if it is really good, it has a chance of gaining some distribution. But YOU have to do the legwork. You can’t just shoot the video and expect people to come looking for you.
