Nationwide – Bushwick Film Festival Open for Submissions – Feb. 15 Early Bird Deadline

The 11th Annual Bushwick Film Festival has extended a special invitation to Virginia filmmakers to submit their work to the festival to increase representation from across the eastern seaboard.  Information below.

We invite filmmakers from Virginia to submit their Short Films, Web Series, Feature Documentaries, and Feature Narratives for competition at our 11th Annual Festival, to take place from October 10—October 14, 2018. Filmmakers can either submit on FilmFreeway (where we’re ranked in the Top 100 Festivals) or Withoutabox.


BFF wants to give independent filmmakers across the country the opportunity to share their stories with a Brooklyn audience. We hope that you will join us in supporting independent voices by sharing our information with and connecting us to the filmmaking community you have established within your office.
