Abbey Film Festival is the beginning of a path for winners. We want all content creators around the world to showcase their best project and for everyone to have an equal chance to succeed. For the moment, the festival will only be virtual, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite you to read the rules and terms to avoid any mistakes and setbacks.
Wishing you all the best, Abbey Film Festival.

•Honorable Mentions (honorable mentions do not mean that you are selected, but rather it is a way of thanking you for presenting your film and your great work)

Once you have submited your project, we will send you an email to let you know the status of your project. If your film is selected, it will go to the next stage and in the course of the days, before the day of the festival, we will notify you if you continue in the following rounds; If, as the days go by, you do not receive more notifications of the status of your project, this means that you could not proceed to the next round.
In the case of honorable mentions, they do not become part of the festival program, they are only given their laurel of recognition.

If your project is selected, we invite you to share it on your social networks and tag our Facebook and/or Instagram accounts as @abbeyfilmfestival.
