401 Film Fest is aimed at discovering new, local, independent filmmakers. Our showcases will be accepting films from all over the world, but with at least 50% Rhode Island submission acceptance. The event is completely free to attend, which is no wonder why most of our screenings have reached venue capacity!
We will be accepting submissions for the "5th Annual 401 Film Fest", starting on November 13th, 2018 - July 31, 2019. It is free for Rhode Island, Massachusetts & Connecticut filmmakers to submit to, and a mere $5 for anybody outside of the region.
Thank YOU for supporting 401 Film Fest!

401 Film Fest has been a smashing success!!! We give our local amateur filmmakers, the people with a camera and a story to tell, a platform for their work to be seen with professionals from all over the world. Check out our facebook for pictures and press!!
We accept all genres and lengths from all over. However, half of the event is dedicated to just local, Rhode Island and New England talent. No Nudity!
All submission fees are non refundable.
