Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – March 2015

DeadlinesMAR15Happy March, filmmakers!

FEST – New Directors|New Films Festival has a big deadline coming up first of all. It’s a great chance to submit to a festival that’s more than a festival, a training ground for new filmmakers based on the Portuguese coast. We had a chat with them last year which you should definitely check out, for the lowdown on what FEST is all about.

An addition to our ever-growing raft of festivals for children, Zlín Film Festival – Int. Film Festival for Children and Youth also has its Late Deadline this month! Don’t forget to submit to the Czech festival. And River Film Festival, an Italian festival with an on-the-river setting to die for, and San Francisco Documentary Festival are also closing its Call for Submissions this month. One last disclaimer: watch DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition, they have a Regular Deadline at the end of the month, but they WILL close it once they reach 1500 submissions, so the sooner the better in that case!

And there’s even more than that, so check out the list below.
