Festival Submissions


2021 FILM FESTIVAL SUBMISSION INFORMATION

DUE TO THE COVID-19 EPIDEMIC, THE 2020 EDITION
OF THE CHICHESTER FILM FESTIVAL HAS BEEN
POSTPONED UNTIL AUGUST 2021.

You may submit your film to 29 May 2021.
If you have submitted a film for 2020, you will automatically be considered for 2021.
Films should be of FEATURE LENGTH only (60-120 minutes), please DO NOT SUBMIT SHORT FILMS.

Films should be new (preferably previews, premieres or new releases) to be eligible for audience voting awards. We especially welcome works by women and minority directors.

We prefer to screen final show prints from a physical disc (BLU RAY/DVD) in either our Studio (seats 40) or in the intimate Picture Palace (seats 14). Downloading (4GB Limit) may also be available for selected submissions.

In exceptional circumstances a selected film may be screened in our main auditorium on DCP. 35mm is available for rare archive material.
Please note that films need to be sent to the Festival at the expense of the filmmakers.

We regret we have no budget to support film makers expenses if they wish to introduce their work. There are no screening fees, and we regret we are unable to offer any wavers for the Submission Fee.



Submission Fee is $16US (£12 approx). Submitted to FilmFreeway
