Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – Sep 2014

DeadlinesSEP14Grab your handkerchiefs, summer is coming to a close here at FFL HQ in Berlin. The upside? More deadlines. Autumn’s a busy time for film submissions and September is no exception!

One to watch is undeniably Flickerfest International Short Film Festival, another one with an Academy-Award qualifying award. Festival Director Bronwyn Kidd says she wants films that are ‘bold and very creative in their storytelling’, in our chat with her here.

Zubroffka International Short Film Festival may be a mid-winter festival in one of Poland’s coldest cities, but it’s damn hot in its programming. Check out our chat with them here, to find out more about the festival that aims to be a ‘bridge between East and West’.

That’s not it – all types of genres are represented this month! Filmmakers with something sport-focused can submit to All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival, horror aficionados to TOHorror Film Fest and Telluride Horror Show and documentary filmmakers to Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival!
