Deadline on FilmFestivalLife – Sep 2015

DeadlinesSEP15There’s a big month of deadlines ahead! Buckle up filmmakers and welcome to September.

‘We’re interested in ‘crossover’ films – films that aren’t too commercial and not too art-house.’ That’s a submission tip from Alexander Mouret, the Artistic Director of the Leiden International Film Festival, from when we caught up with him in Cannes. Check out the chat we had and get submitting – Late Deadline is upcoming this month.

That’s not the only biggie! Don’t miss out on submitting to the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, an A-List festival, it’s undeniably one of the most prestigious festivals in Europe. Great opportunity to visit the beautiful Estonian capital too.

Horror filmmakers should also check out the Telluride Horror Show, whose submission period will also close this month. For a snapshot of what it’s all about, take a look at the chat we had with them last year here. And there’s more where that came from. Check out the list below, it’s a packed September…
