Your film is actively promoted inside the sales booth by you. Your assistant must promote your film outside the booth.
You have control over who obtains your screeners. You must sales pitch every visitor to your booth over the 11 days of the show. You must give away a DVD or they will forget you in 5 minutes. Downloads won't make it.
