Entry guidelines

2019 Submissions

More 2019 Atlanta Film Festivals:

‚ÄčEntries should be submitted through Withoutabox or FilmFreeway, via an online source such as a WAB on-line screener or vimeo link.


Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the exhibition format will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. Be sure to indicate any special screening/presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.

Cost of shipping exhibition prints to the festival is the responsibility of the entrant. Exhibition copies must be sent to the festival prepaid. The festival can not accept responsibility for damage or loss of materials while in transit. Please use as little packaging material as possible to cut down on trash.


‚ÄčAlthough the art of filmmaking is not competitive, AHFF does give accolades to films selected as best in various categories: Best Feature and Short, Best Director, Best Horror Comedy, Best Sci-Fi, Best Thriller, and many more. Visit the Awards Page.


Feel free to email us if you would like confirmation of entry.
