The international film festival circuit offers many opportunities to subtitled
films, and it is usually the first choice for both emerging and experienced
filmmakers wanting to get their films noticed worldwide.
That’s why filmmakers often choose the festival route as a first step to test the
waters and show their films abroad over a couple of years. The film festivals
are a great opportunity to gain recognition and to increase the chances of
getting a distribution deal.
After English and Chinese, Spanish is the main language worldwide in terms
of its number of speakers. Over 500 million people speak it. See a list
of some popular film festivals in Spanish-speaking countries:
