How to Submit

*The extended deadline for regular submissions (i.e. narrative or documenatry shorts and features) has passed and thus the call for regular entries is closed.
We are still accepting FutureWave submissions so you may submit by  completing the FutureWave online entry form or submitting via Withoutabox.

*Please note that if  you choose to fill  out the online entry form, you will need to complete the entire form and pay the fees in one sitting. You cannot return to it at a later time so if you submit it without completing all fields and/or without sending a payment, you will need to re-do the whole form.

If you submit and pay the fees through the online entry form, please DO NOT also submit on Withoutabox.

If you begin an online entry form, but decide to submit through Withoutabox, please e-mail so the online entry form can be removed.
