All official entries must be submitted through FilmFreeway. The EOD Film Festival does not accept films any other way. All notifications regarding the submitted films will be through the FilmFreeway website. Films must be less than 25 minutes in length. We do not accept feature length films. All films must have been made less than 3 years prior to the festival screening date. Non-English works are accepted. However, the film must have English subtitles. Any non-English film submitted without subtitles will be disqualified. Student films are accepted and will be judged in a category of their own in addition to competing for the other awards.

The EOD Film Festival only accepts narrative short films. The narrative short films are divided into two categories.

Short – Runtime 0:00 – 12:00 minutes
Not-so Short – Runtime 12:01 – 25:00 minutes

Each category has five genre’s available to submit your film.

Action, Sci-Fi, Horror, Comedy, Drama


The End of Days Film Festival accepts a large number of films as "Official Selections" to represent the EOD Film Festival. However, due to limited screening availability, only a select number of films will screen.

The process is as follows:

Judges will review all the films submitted to the End of Days Film Festival. After a thorough review, EOD staff will accept films that meet the End of Days Film Festival standards. *Not all accepted films will screen at the End of Days Film Festival. Filmmakers will be notified of their films acceptance status via Filmfreeway.

Accepted films will then be reviewed and nominated for awards. Filmmakers will be notified by EOD staff of their nomination. Award nomination laurels will be given to all nominated films. Winners will then be chosen and announced.

Films chosen for screening will be downloaded from FilmFreeway website. They will be screened in the format you uploaded to the FilmFreeway website. If your film is screened, you will have an opportunity to provide EOD with an updated version of the film.

The End of Days Film Festival Organizers may add to or amend these rules at any time without notice.

  • Erik LeDrew

    Trent and the End of Days crew were super communicative and inclusive, willing to accommodate a last-minute finishing of film just days before it premiered at their fest. Highly recommended!
