Film festivals constitute one type of forum where documentaries frequently premiere.
There are thousands of film festivals around the world, some focused on particular themes, a number celebrating solely documentaries, and many selecting a broad array of filmmaking genres and subjects. Film festivals provide opportunities to spread awareness about a finished documentary, begin to build a loyal fan base, promote the production, and find distributors into end markets like television, theaters, and digital portals.
JEMGLO's Delicious Peace Grows In A Ugandan Coffee Bean is currently on the film festival circuit.
The documentary has garnered awards for Best Documentary, Best Short Documentary and Best Faith/Spiritual Documentary. It has been an Official Selection in over 20 festivals, including:
- Santa Barbara Int Film Festival
