We are interested in viewing all films regardless of the genre or topic. If you do not feel your film fits into any of the above categories, please pick the one that you feel suits your film closest.

  New York
  San Francisco


In an effort to make submission fees more affordable to filmmakers and also allow them an opportunity to gain exposure in our multiple festivals we're offering Package Deals (see below for details).


Each festival has a different set of programmers and therefore if your film doesn't make it into one festival that doesn't necessarily mean it won't play in another. Each festival has a unique lineup that is tailor made for that particular city.


To help filmmakers get a better understanding of our programming system, we're now offering them Film Feedback. This is a service that is designed to give filmmakers valuable insight from our programmers. This could be used to make the film better or simply validate what you already know. Either way it could prove to be a helpful tool if you choose to include it.
