Upcoming February deadlines

Hi all-
Hope everyone is having a great year (where did January go?). The following festivals are open for entries with deadlines in February, (for some this is the final deadline, but others this is the early deadline or somewhere in between). Please be respectful of festivals that are restricted to a certain region or area as well as those that require the filmmaker to attend. It is really important to read the festival terms so that you don’t spam a festival with work that doesn’t meet the criteria.
