NFFTY Call For Films Now Open
Over 12 years, NFFTY has grown into the world’s largest and most influential film festival for emerging filmmakers under 25 years – helping to foster and support the next generation of storytellers (with the help of educators like you!).
Twice named One of the 50 Fests Worth the Entry Fee by MovieMaker Magazine and currently one of the Top 100 Rated Festivals on FilmFreeway, NFFTY provides a one-of-a-kind first class venue for the world’s best young directors.
NFFTY is thrilled to announce the Call for Entries for NFFTY 2018, as well as a new date for the festival! NFFTY has been to the fall and 2018 will be held October 25 – 28!
NFFTY is offering an Educator Discount of 20% off submissions of three or more films. Please email the NFFTY offices for more information.
Early Submission Deadline: April 10, 2018
Late Submission Deadline: July 20, 2018
Filmmakers can submit to the following categories: features, shorts, documentaries, music videos, animation and experimental. And this year NFFTY opens their festival once again to VR and 360° makers — just make sure to mark that on the category when submitting to FilmFreeway.
