Submissions open June 1, 2017 for the next festival on April 3-7, 2018.

All non-fiction films (earliest release date Jan. 2012) are eligible.

Dear Filmmakers! Nonfiction and ethnographic films are not simply about far away people and places.  We particularly solicit movies about modern life  as well as remote corners of the planet!

Vimeo links are accepted by both Withoutabox and FilmFreeway.  No DVDs please.

Screening committees finish their work at the end of January 2018 for the April festival. For shorter films sometimes an early acceptance is granted.

We require online entries.  Our submission platforms such as Withoutabox and FilmFreeway feature online applications via one master entry form, online fee payments, press kits, and screeners.  Once you have completed a master entry form you have the  advantage of quick entry and submission management tools. There’s no cost to join the global filmmaker community of Withouabox or FilmFreeway.
