★ IMDb Qualifying Festival ★

Blackboard International Film Festival focuses to celebrate Film Makers and Creators around the world, who take a risk and do experiments in Film Making. We are an initiative to support and celebrate Film Makers around the world. We watch films, we write and talk about them. Every month we invite Film Makers to submit their Short, Feature, Documentary, Animated, and Experimental films/Script or Screenplay & Music videos.

Annual physical screening happens in our small city Elambachi-Payyanur, located in the northern part of Kerala, India.

Dear Filmmakers,

There is no competition for any category.
We will be selecting some sets of films/Scripts/Music videos that will be categorized as Official Selection.
All the selected projects will get official laurel.
Every month we will be selecting the winners in each category.
Only the Best Film of the month will be screened at our annual event.

We are accepting entries electronically through FilmFreeway.
We accept Work-in-progress.
Multiple entries from the same submitter are accepted.
In case of any dispute regarding the rights of the film, Blackboard International Film Festival won't take any responsibility.
In case your project is chosen as part of the official selection, you also authorize the use of images, trailers, or small portions of your project for the marketing and advertising purposes of the festival.

If you have any queries kindly mail us info@blackboardforum.in and we are happy to help you out.

    Blackboard...I enjoyed the experience of having my screenplay involved in your circuit. I wish the communication was stronger cause the judging felt a little abrupt. No build up. Hoping to have an award mailed out and receive feedback for continued growth in my journey.
