How To Submit Your Film

Time is running out to submit your film to the Alameda International Film Festival with only a few weeks left before the final deadline. Our festival program is already studded with a variety of great films, but even then we know there’s a plethora of cinema we’ve yet to lay our eyes on.

If you’re considering submitting your short or feature film to AIFF, follow these easy steps to get your work in front of our producers and, if all goes well, onto the big screen. And keep in mind the words of the great Wayne Gretzky, who once said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”

Step 1: Head over to our page on Film Freeway.

Step 2: Once there, you’ll have to make a filmmaker account with Film Freeway if you don’t have one already.

Step 3: Submit your film. (Keep in mind there is a fee to submit to our film festival. You have until August 15th to pay the “late comer” fee. After August 15th, the fee will increase. The final deadline to submit is September 5th.)

By following steps one, two, and three, your film will be officially under review. Submitting is easy, it’s the time in between as you wait to hear if your film has been accepted that can be the most excruciating part of the process. But have patience, padawan, you shall know your fate by September 12th when we announce the films we’ll be screening at this year’s Alameda International Film Festival.

No matter what happens, we hope to see you at the event during the weekend of October 7-9.

Good luck!
