BFF IS ONE OF MOVIEMAKER MAGAZINE'S 50 FESTIVALS WORTH THE ENTRY FEE

MovieMaker says: "We’ve assembled a list of 50 festivals whose attendees get more fest than the rest."

SUBMIT A FILM - CLOSED
BFF prefers paperless entries submitted via Withoutabox.com or FilmFreeway.com. Both platforms provide cost-saving, online entry to major film festivals throughout the U.S. with one master entry form, allowing you and us to enter your film more quickly and with greater accuracy. This method is free and easy.
