We are really excited to open Submissions for the 9th edition of STIFF. Last year we received a little over 500 submissions and selected 32 features and 100 short films for Screening in the Festival. This year we are preparing to take a look at well over 500 films and put together a well rounded program for our Dedicated Seattle Audience. We would really like to take a look at your film and if you’re not sure if you should submit here are a few points to consider-
A Total of $2500.00 in Cash Prizes
No increase in Submission fees from last year
New Lower Submissions fees for Student Films and Indepenetration- Only $20.00 until Late Deadline
We Continue to Support Local Filmmakers with automatic Submission Fee Waivers for Current Washington State Resident Filmmakers or Films shot in Washington State (use INDIEWASH)
We include Short Films up to 45 Minutes in Length.
Last year 25% of our films selected for the festival were Documentaries. We would like to increase that to 40% this year.
We would love to see your film. If you have any questions about the process please email Will Chase our Program Director email@example.com
