Glendale International Film Festival Is Accepting Submissions

The Glendale International Film Festival is now accepting film and screenplay submissions for its 10th anniversary.
The film festival, produced and presented by nonprofit Glendale Arts, will be held from Sept. 26 through Oct. 1.
Filmmakers and screenwriters from all over the world are invited to submit their projects via FilmFreeway at filmfreeway.com/GlendaleInternationalFilmFestival. Films, student films and screenplays will be accepted until the final submission deadline on July 12. Selected films will be screened during the festival at the Glendale location of the legendary Laemmle Theatres, an arthouse cinema icon beloved by generations of filmmakers.
This year, the film festival has expanded to 22 submission categories. New additions include “Glendale Film – Feature & Short,” highlighting films shot in Glendale and/or filmmakers who were born in, grew up in, went to school in or currently live in the city; “Female Filmmaker – Feature & Short,” recognizing films directed by, produced by, and/or written by female-identifying filmmakers; and “Dramedy Short,” added in response to the staying power of films that blend drama and comedy, each of which has its own stand-alone category – “Drama Short” and “Comedy Short.”
The Glendale International Film Festival is a dynamic celebration of storytelling and the cinematic arts, spotlighting independent films and the talents of thousands of local-to-global creative artists on the big screen. From the opening night party to awards night, the fun-filled six-day event is centered around building connections and collaboration among filmmakers, audiences, and the community.
For more information about the Glendale International Film Festival, contact Glendale Arts COO Maria Sahakian at msahakian@glendalearts.org or (818) 243-2611.
