In this third part we show a possible route to submit to three documentary and five animation film festivals. As always, we remind filmmakers that your movie could be accepted in more than one category.
Documentary Film Festivals Application Route
PROS: The festivals deadline and country premiere status do not interfere with each other. There is no entry fee for the festivals.
CONS: There are only three festivals exclusively dedicated to documentaries.
FEES: None all festivals are free to enter.
Very important: For submitting to all the festivals in the list your documentary should be below the 40-minute mark.
Animation Film Festivals Application Route
PROS: You can apply to the four festivals without worrying about premier status restrictions. There is no Entry Fees.
Very important: For submitting to all the festivals in the list your film should be below the 25-minute mark. Please remember that the Hiroshima International Film Festival is a biennale, so you won’t be able to send your productions on 2021.
