Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – June 2015

DeadlinesJUN15Welcome to the European Summer, filmmakers! Outdoor festivals, al fresco dining and long sunlit evenings. There’s much to look forward to, but don’t forget, there’s still plenty of deadlines to get stuck into…

One to watch out for is the DocLisboa – International Film Festival. We had a chat with their Program Coordinator last year, Miguel Ribeiro, finding out more about the documentary fest in the Portuguese capital. Late Deadline is June 15th. There’s also the Regular Deadline of the Queer Lisboa – International Queer Film Festival. Anyone tempted should check out our interview with their Festival Programmer Pedro Marum where we discuss the emergence of LGBT cinema on the film festival circuit. Crossing into Italy, filmmakers with a penchant for children’s films should look at Giffoni Film Festival, whose open call is also closing!

New Orleans Film Festival also has a Late Deadline this month, and who wouldn’t want to submit to a festival in the Big Easy? Especially when you consider that it is Oscar-qualifying for the Documentary Short section! Other US festivals with big deadlines include HollyShorts Film Festival, the Boston Asian American Film FestivalSunscreen Film Festival West, the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival and the American Documentary Film Festival Film Fund. Wow! What a month, and you’re not done yet…
