The following updates are from my master list. Part of the process is finding festivals that now charge fees, so if I missed any, it was unintentional. (please let me know)
best of luck,

Hamburg International Short Film Festival 02/16/18
this is the Hamburg ShortFilmFestival calling! Calling for your entries to be precise. Please head over to our entry form and submit your new films. We are looking forward to seeing every single one of them. And please make sure to submit your film with burned in english subtitles if the language is any other than english. Not quite the same procedure as every year, though, since as of this year we will only be accepting submissions via our own website (here is the entry form, by the way) and not rely on external submission platforms. We hope this will make the whole submission process easier and more clear cut than before.

The London Lesbian Film Festival is a celebratory gathering at which we project our images, challenge our politics, and reflect upon our lives. The festival aims to portray the richness and diversity of lesbian experiences and to strengthen our communities. The Festival is held every year in London, Ontario, Canada. Online submission form.
