Deadlines on FilmFestivalLife – Oct 2015

DeadlinesOCT15We’re going to keep the introductions short and get straight to the nitty-gritty this month! After all, you’ve got submissions to do…

Here’s three biggies. It’s your final chance to submit to the Portland International Film Festival – situated in arguably the coolest city in the United States, it’s an equally impressive film festival. And it’s the last chance saloon also for the San Francisco Independent Film Fest and the Paris edition of International Festival Signes de Nuit (Signs of the Night).

The list also includes festivals from the entire festival circuit – ones that aren’t necessarily open on FilmFestivalLife right now. Why? We do this so you have a broader overview, with all the details you need to make a fullproof submission strategy for the upcoming month. Here’s one of those festivals and it’s our homegrown behemoth: the Berlin International Film Festival, whose Late Deadline is this month. Happy October filmmakers!
