SUBMIT TODAY! Hollywood Film Festival calling for entries


The 17th Annual HOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL is now open for submissions in the follow genres: Features (all genres including animation, drama, comedy, horror), Docs, and Shorts (including animation).




With film presentations taking place in the heart of Hollywood, the Festival presents a valuable screening platform for independent filmmakers, while providing for access to the studios and industry at large. The 2013 event will take this concept to the next level, presenting a unique networking program with “HOLLYWOOD NETWORK® INITIATIVE.” Once again the Hollywood Film Festival will take place at the state of the art ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. Keep on SCROLLING DOWN to submit film.

With filmmakers always looking for broad exposure, this year the “HOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL” is pleased to be offering a select number of short films to Internet audiences, providing streaming opportunities to industry professionals and the online community.

In addition, the HOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL, through the “Hollywood Gives Back® Project” will showcase the other side of Hollywood, celebrating the Industry’s creative artists who have supported causes around the world. These efforts will be integrated into the CineCause Spotlight section of the Festival.

The winners of the HOLLYWOOD FILM FESTIVAL – Features, Documentaries, Shorts – will be recognized on stage at the prestigious HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS GALA ceremony, and will receive 4 complimentary VIP GALA tickets. The Hollywood Film Awards Gala launches the awards season.

We are very proud that our finalists and winners have secured agents and distribution deals (HBO, Miramax, IFC, Indican, 7th Art Releasing, and Starz Entertainment among other distributors) due to their exposure during our Hollywood Film Festival.

Our latest success story is our HFF winner, CRAIG BREWER, for the sale of his movie “Hustle and Flow” to Paramount Studios for $9 million. Craig Brewer was discovered at the 2000 Hollywood Film Festival when we showcased the world premiere of his first film “Poor and Hungry.”

Another HFF winner, director Robert DeFranco, sold his film “Telling You” to Miramax. Our winner Zoe Clarke-Williams got a directing job for an MGM film after we honored her. In addition, our winning documentarian Janine Hoskins sold her documentary “My Khmer Heart” to HBO.

“For up-and-coming filmmakers looking for a break the festival is the ultimate networking opportunity”, said “Daily Variety.”
