Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – May 2015

DeadlinesMAY15FFL partner festivals have many big deadlines this month, including HollyShorts Film Festival. The short film festival is showcasing the best short films from around the globe, the festival, as you’ve probably guessed, has Hollywood as its home. Where else?!

Edmonton International Film Festival’s call for entries is also coming to an end this month. We spoke to their Festival Producer Kerrie Long about their festival last year, and there’s no doubts some of her tips for submitting in 2014 still stand. Such as, ‘story is by far the strongest element we are looking for.‘ Keep your eyes on the storyline, filmmakers.

2ANNAS’ deadline is also approaching fast. One of Eastern Europe’s finest film festivals, it’s one we’d gladly call a ‘must-submit’. With deadlines upcoming too for the Portland Film Festival, the shnit International Shortfilmfestival and for fans of the bike, the aptly titled Bicycle Film Festival – FFL filmmakers are utterly spoiled this May. Happy submitting!
