Deadline on FilmFestivalLife – July 2015

DeadlinesJUL15What’s cooking in July? Here’s what. A veritable ton of deadlines.

Los Angeles International Short Film Festival is one to enter into your notebooks. Academy Award-qualifying, and BAFTA-qualifying to boot, a submission to this festival could herald the start of a very successful festival career. And it’s in LA, where the sun never stops shining. The Late Deadline is this month, so hurry filmmakers!

“Apart from the FX – which is obviously still important in a good fantastic movie – creativity, intuition, freedom and bravery win out.” In our chat with their Artistic Director Massimiliano Supporta, we found out Italian fest TOHorror Film Fest are looking for those four qualities in submitted films. So, if you’re certain your film exhibits those qualities, then get submitting to the festival, as its Late Deadline is upcoming this month.

A Polish festival specializing in exhibiting cinema with a “rebellious” bent,  TOFIFEST International Film Festival also has a Late Deadline upcoming this month. Deadlines too for the likes of THESS International Short Film Festival and Minneapolis Underground Film Festival, and many more, make this an undeniably diverse month for your submission calendars. Happy submitting!
