Submissions are now open for the 2021 festival.

All non-fiction films with release dates after January 2015 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 from FilmFreeway.  No DVDs.

Screening committees finish their work at the end of January 2020 for the April festival. For shorter films sometimes an early acceptance is granted.

We require online entries.  Our submission platform is FilmFreeway. It uses online applications via one master entry form, online fee payments, press kits, and screeners.  Once you complete a master entry form you have quick entry and submission management tools. No cost to join the global filmmaker community of FilmFreeway.
