Hey all, not sure where to post this so move it if you need to...

Anyway, I just completed post production on a short that I wrote and directed (and for the most part was the DP) and I have been asked to screen at the premier of another short film in the area.

Here's the deal offered to me:

I get my film on screen for free, the other film has paid for the rental of the venue and the catering, online promotion and print ads for the event that is highlighting their film.

All I have to do is sell 100 tickets to secure my spot in the event. How do I get 100 people interested in paying $15 to see a short film that they've never heard of?

The event is a showcase of 3 local short films, the featured short film being the one that the whole thing is really about.

So much for the set-up, now here's my concern:

I haven't shown this film anywhere yet, so it'd be a premier of sorts. I am not being given any comp tickets to the event so I would have to either buy all of the tickets for my cast and crew or sell them tickets, which I'm not keen on doing since they all came out for little to no money.

So, that being said, does this sound like a deal? Or should I find my own venue?
