We started our festival last month and were humbled by the outpouring of support. Because of the continued interest and the extended quarantine we are doing it all over again. Welcome to The Agoraphobia Film Festival Part 2 - May Day Edition!

Our festival is designed to encourage people to create during this time of quarantine, to showcase great films, and to pay the bills of displaced hospitality workers. That's the world we came from and we want to give back.

Last month we technically became an international film festival with works from Five different countries and Four Continents. We also had filmmakers as young as 5 years old. It was truly a special event.

This festival is open to all short form content. Both scripted and unscripted projects.

If your project was selected and cancelled by another festival email us the cancellation at acroe@coattailmedia.com and you are automatically in. If you have a new project that hasn't yet been seen we will be selecting a new slate with producers, writers, agents, and network executives.

The submission fee is $15.00, but if this is a hardship for you in any way we will waive it. If you're able to pay please do. If you are not just email us and we will give you a waiver code no questions asked.

Our screenings will be on youtube and the winners will be selected by:
Audience Award: Likes Count dislikes get ignored
Festival Selects: Judged By our Festival Crew

Because of the current situation, this happened fast. Awards will be updated. The only thing we can guarantee today is that you will get laurels, feedback from Producers, Actors, Agents and Network Executives. Stay tuned.

Audience Award is presented to the project with the most likes on Youtube

Festival Selects Award is presented to the project with the most votes from festival staff.
