do film festivals like Sundance and Caanes, do they really....?

Do those film festivals really bring to light aspiring filmmakers? Like if I submit my film into Sundance and it wins, can I take that winning film and use it as a portfolio to get hired as a filmmaker in hollywood? Or do I have to make film after film? ALSO, how do you break into the filmmaking business if you don't know anyone in the business?

    Tons of people submit their films to these festivals. Almost all of them are rejected. Only a small handful of them that are accepted garner any kind of attention. By your question I can tell you have a lot to learn. Learn this much. Becoming a successful filmaker is just about the hardest thing you could ever attempt. Even harder than acting. You can make movies for fun for very little money these days. Get a real job and make movies for fun. If you end up with a carreer then great. If not, you still got to do what you like to do.
