Film submission

There is no entry fee for submitting your film. However, we cannot cover the shipping cost.

We will require everyone interested to first submit a completed festival entry form, and if possible, an online trailer/or sampler of the film. The deadline for this is on October 4, 2015. We will then give our feedback after three days. You may send the completed form and a link to the film’s trailer/sampler to agitprop.filmfest2@gmail.com

Screening Format

Films can be submitted in DVD format (preferably NTSC), DV tapes (also in NTSC), or digital .avi or .mov files (*recommended, especially for videos in HD format). The films will be shown using a digital projector which is why we cannot accept film prints.
