Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – April 2015

DeadlinesAPR15Springtime usually heralds a spot of cleaning but instead maybe it’s time to get submitting? Big this month includes the renowned Bosnia and Herzegovina festival International Film Festival Kratkofil Plus. We had a chat with Program Director Vladan Petkovic last year about the festival, which pioneered bringing short films to Bosnia & Herzegovina and why festivals are important especially in that region.

DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition has its Late Deadline upcoming, but there’s a catch! Once they hit 1,500 submissions they will close submissions, so watch out – their call closing could be coming earlier than you think. As they say, the early bird catches the worm.

Documentary filmmakers should definitely submitting to Antenna Documentary Film Festival. And we haven’t even mentioned Rome’s International Tour Film Fest, the K3 Film Festival and the Syros International Film Festival – after all, there isn’t a much better cinematic experience than watching your film screened on a Greek island in the midst of a balmy summer…

Happy submitting!
