On the Horizon

All the submission deadlines for 2012 are now closed and we have already begun planning for the next three festival locations. The upcoming festivals will take place in San Francisco, Chicago, and Tulsa and we are thrilled to see what these cities will bring. San Francisco is the next festival, which will take place August 31st-September 6th at the historic Roxie Theater. Our Founder Jason Connell along with Operations Manager Jordan Menashe and a team of amazing programmers have already begun to program films into the schedule. For each festival, programming becomes an intricate puzzle of films that they must piece together to create a stunning lineup.

After San Francisco, the United Film Festival will be coming to Chicago and Tulsa. These will be the final festival cities of 2012. Don’t worry, we are already looking ahead to next year! Submissions for Los Angeles, New York, and London are now open for 2013. That’s the wonderful thing about the United Film Festival, we are constantly working to allow our favorite films to screen six times a year in six different cities. This gives submitters across the country access to a network of independent filmmakers and festival goers.

Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of our festival. Submit today and make sure to check out the lineup for the United Film Festival – San Francisco in the coming weeks!
