FILM FESTIVALS

We created this page to help filmmakers recognize film festivals worthy to submit. Really, the greatest number of film festivals in the world can be confusing. Thus, the saving of the budget becomes not a trivial task. For example, almost 500 film festivals are held in Hollywood each year, and 144 film festivals are organized in Cannes. To establish some credibility, we decided to make a list of major qualified film festivals (Academy, FIAPF, BAFTA, etc.). Most of them don’t have an account on the Filmfreeway. In our database, there is a link to the page of each festival, where you can submit your short film.
