Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – Jan 2015

DeadlinesJAN15It’s an early Deadline List this month, as it’s holidays time! Lo and behold, there’s a veritable avalanche of deadlines – January is after all, all about getting things done. Here’s what’s coming up in the first month of the year for you, filmmakers…

‘The operative word in short film is S.H.O.R.T.S.’ Sounds simple, but sometimes it’s the simple advice that’s the best. That’s just one tip Tony Armer of Sunscreen Film Festival has for filmmakers for submitting to his festival in our FOCUS interview we had with him prior to their upcoming Late Deadline. Barcelona International Auteur Film Festival also has a Late Deadline upcoming. If you fancy seeing your film screened at one of the most experimental and innovative festivals, in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, then this certainly is a festival to consider submitting to!

And if that’s not enough, documentary buffs can submit to the American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund and there’s also the Children’s International Film Festival, Dubai, part of a growing number of FFL festivals for children. As they say, the children are the future! Happy holidays and a Happy New Year filmmakers – see you in 2015!
