Have a new film that needs to be seen? Looking for somewhere to test out your new project? You’ve come to the right place!
Nextfest is looking for films by new and emerging filmmakers who are looking to see their work on the screen for the first time. Films that have not received distribution, and are up to 20 minutes, of any genre, are welcome to apply.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATION WILL BE GIVEN TO FILMS THAT…
- are helmed by or feature significant creative contributions from members of underserved or newly served communities
- have a running time of fewer than 10 minutes
- have not had a local or online screening
- have been completed in the 12 months preceding the festival
We will consider incomplete films, however, please have a work-in-progress cut available. Only the first work submitted by a filmmaker will be considered. Please do not apply with multiple films.
HOW TO SUBMIT
Deadline to apply is February 29, 2020
