While I don't think the answer I offer is adequate, I think it is
probably accurate...

Submitting to a series is like a job interview, since if their film is
selected, it will probably be rented for projection.

A film festival does not pay for the films shown, but is a competition,
and offers the chance to win awards, usually money. Traditionally, we
pay money to enter contests.
