    But it was impossible using FILMFREEWAY: entry closed.

    • Dear Hans-J. Ramoth; We took information from their FilmFreeway page, in that profile the deadline for international films is June 10th. BUT in their Shortfilmdepot profile the deadline is June 15th. Maybe you can submit your movie via that platform.
