In some instances, we will waive this limitation for submissions that are MID-LENGTH -- under 50 minutes.

(We suggest that you contact us first to enter any film over 20 minutes in length.)

Your Submission for entry via FilmFestivalLife is subject and limited by the number of submissions we receive. We may have to change the deadline dates on FilmFestivalLife if/when we reach our quota of "free" entries via this service.
