Upcoming festival deadlines, some really soon

Some more upcoming festival deadlines. You may have noticed that I have begun omitting whether it is online or DVD. I have instead gradually shifted to mentioning if the festival accepts DVD only. Many festivals have online submission at this point. The festivals that accept only DVD usually do so for a reason, which include archiving, filtering and storage purposes.

best of luck,
