Haven't heard about the status of your submission? 

Submissions status for all films and screenplays submitted to ATLFF 2015 will be released no later than noon ET on Sunday, February 15th.

Unless you unsubscribed from our mailing list, you should receive at least one email about your film submission. (Our email software won't let us send out multiple emails per email address, so if you submitted multiple films you will still only get email about one of them.)

To check the current status of your film, please log in to FilmFreeway or Withoutabox (whichever platform you chose to use when you submitted). The status of each project will be listed there.
