Thank You! Filmmakers

Thank you to all the filmmakers who submitted their films for consideration this year. Our submission deadline closed on June 4. We will be announcing our official selections on June 18th.

All filmmakers will be notified via our FilmFreeway notification management.


The final stages of programming are always the hardest, as we are still trying to squeeze in a few more films.

Unfortunately, not all of the wonderful films we view for consideration can be included in our selection.

If you have not received notification yet, email us directly for a prompt reply on your film status.

Thank you again for sharing your project with us.
