You can also create lists of your favorite picks, which you can keep private or share with the community.

A secure environment for your online screener

A film package should be first and foremost secure.

Unlike other platforms, FFL doesn’t allow links to other Video hosting services – we ask you to upload your film files on our servers. This is the only way to guarantee that only the festivals you submit your film to are able to access your sensitive film file.

Every week we give out 5 x 50% fee discount codes for festivals with a Late Deadline. Something for the quick ones – after five times, the codes expire. Keep an eye on your FFL Weekly Newsletter for the magic codes.
