Submit Your Work to the 2017 Atlanta Film Festival

The Call for the 2017 Atlanta Film Festival film entries is closed, but you still have time to submit your screenplay! From March 24 to April 2, 2017, we will be celebrating our 41st anniversary and we need your help to make it our best yet. Submit your feature and pilot scripts before December 9th on FilmFreeway using the discount code above!

We received nearly 600 screenplay submissions last year, making for our most competitive Screenplay Competition since its inception in 2008. We are looking for innovative and compelling storytelling, for characters that surprise and challenge you, for words that pop off the page, and for narratives that twist and turn like a country back road. This year were accepting both feature scripts and pilot scripts; youre more than welcome to submit in both categories. 

Last year, we received over 4,700 film submissions from more than 120 countries across all 6 populated continents (sorry, Antarctica). Out of nearly 200 films that play the Atlanta Film Festival each year, roughly 80% of those come from submissions! In programming next year's festival, we are looking for groundbreaking works in narrative and documentary features and short films, animations, experimental films, puppetry films, music videos, virtual reality films and episodic pilots. 

Films and screenplays must comply with category requirements and filmmakers must complete the process and payment to be considered for ATLFF '17. Have questions? Check out our Film Submissions FAQ and our Screenplay Submissions FAQ.
