Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – 2014

Deadlines MAY 2014Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. Whilst many in the film community will be hightailing it down to La Croisette for one rather glamorous film festival, let’s not forget that May is still high time for submissions! It’s time to say bonjour to May’s Deadline List!

One of our biggest deadlines this month is Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, one of the world’s top short film fests with an Oscar qualifying award to boot.

However, it’s the last chance for a trio of big-hitter festivals. Australia’s Antenna Documentary Festival, whose Program Director recently gave us the lowdown on why his fest is best. Or perhaps you fancy a shot at Riga International Film Festival 2ANNAS? If you want to know more about Latvia’s top film festival, check out our chat with them recently. And of course, there’s NYC Independent Film Festival, whose blockbuster Times Square location belies their fierce independent streak. See what Dennis Cieri, their Program Director, had to say here.

Like always, there’s a ton more coming up in May, and even more…when you count in FFL’s entire online library! Get submitting!
