2019 Call for Entries is Open

2019 Call for EntriesThe Tallahassee Film Festival is accepting submissions for our 2019 film festival! Feature films, short films, animated films, documentary films, experimental films or television work – it’s all eligible as long as it was completed between January 2018 and January 15, 2019!

We pride ourselves on exceptional and unexpected programming. Film is an art form that has the ability to make changes not only in someone’s life, but in the world, and therefore we respect and nurture our selected filmmakers as artists with something important to say. This Festival was created as a safe space for artists and filmmakers to share their work with an audience of both their peers and those who appreciate film. That’s why we’re also a Festival that accepts rough cuts for possible screening as well.

The Tallahassee Film Festival held its inaugural event in May 2008. Since then, the Festival has brought groundbreaking films and filmmakers to Florida’s Capital City. We’ve showcased films by Oscar winning directors — before they were Oscar winners. We’ve premiered films from all over the world and from many of the most prestigious film festivals. Over the years, the Festival has become an international hub for filmmakers to network, party and share their work with like-minded and cinema-appreciative audiences.
