Festival Management Tool for Filmmakers

You have spent countless hours writing, casting, shooting, and editing your project and now are ready to release your baby into the world.  Of course you plan to upload it for streaming, either through YouTube or Vimeo, or any of number of other sites.  But if you are planning on submitting to film and web series festivals, you know you have work to do...forms to submit, materials to put together, etc.  But it doesn't have to be difficult. 

We have used Withoutabox for many years for film festival submissions, and in going through the lists of competitions, I noticed many web series festivals are now included in the list, and many established film festivals are adding digital/webseries/new media categories.  This site is a great resource for filmmakers.  It is free to use, lists film and web festivals from around the world, lets you search them easily, and best of all, lets you set up your projects in their platform and upload your materials and screeners.  This means that you don't have to fill out a ton of paperwork every time you want to enter a competition.  You simply select on the festival that you want to enter, select "Qualify my project" and it will tell you which categories your project fits.  You pay the festival entry fee, submit your project, and you are done.  You can track where your project is in the process (Submitted, acknowledged, in consideration or deleted).  

If you are considering entering many festivals, it may be worth your time to check it out and set up your project. https://www.withoutabox.com/


  1. We've been using it for several years now, and it makes life a lot easier once you get the initial project set up. And I have it set to send reminders when festivals that I am interested in open for submissions.

  2. It would be great if someone could put together a calendar with all the Web Fest / Film Fest on it. Something like that could probably be done on Google calendars so it can be shared. If anyone is interested in creating such a thing for the community here is a "starter list" of events: https://twitter.com/webseriestoday/lists/fest/members

  3. I've been using FilmFreeway for festival management. It's got a much better experience and more active festivals. They all accept online screeners, and even YouTube and Vimeo integration. https://filmfreeway.com
