Hi all, I am in the process of adding/updating. I am sending some deadlines that are today, in case you have something ready to send. Note, some festivals have restrictions, please note if they only accept for a certain region or demographic, or if they only offer free submission to a certain group such as students, or local filmmakers. Also, just a note about film freeway, since many of the festivals now use it- there is no charge to filmmakers to make an account and upload films, etc. to create a film festival package. If a festival does not charge a fee, there will be no cost.
best of luck,
UCLAxFilmFest 2021 will take place virtually the weekend of August 27th, 28th and 28th! This year marks our sixth annual UCLAxFilmFest.
