The FearFighters Quarterly Showcase is an opportunity to present your short films and experimental videos in a welcoming environment.

At, we want to harness our collective, artistic energy to make a statement: Fears that breed hatred will not be perpetuated and such hatred will not go unchallenged.

We are seeking short films and videos with run times of 10 minutes or less (including credits) for showcasing during a quarterly event. The next showcase is slated for Fall 2022.

This first series of showcases will be held in Atlanta.

The creators of selected films/videos will be invited to participate in an live audience dialogue (either in person or virtually) following their screening at this showcase.

If selected, this is a great opportunity for a filmmaker to further promote their work. For more information, apply today!

This is not a traditional festival as there will be no prizes or judges. It’s just people supporting each other and showcasing their work.

There are no submission fees—Submission fees are waived and free!

We are currently accepting digital submissions only. Animations are welcome too. Entrants must submit online screeners through FilmFreeway for consideration.

Films and videos made with low-end cameras are very welcome. If copyrighted music is featured in your content, then the creator must have permission to use that music.

All films and videos selected for screening during the showcase grant FearFighters Quarterly Showcase the right to use stills and excerpts of up to two minutes for promotional purposes.

We are particularly interested in showcasing Atlanta Metro Area filmmakers and content creators as the event will be hosted in Atlanta. Please INCLUDE YOUR ZIP CODE in the notes with your submission. However, creators outside of Atlanta are welcome to apply.

    FearFighters had the most incredible communication, follow-up on status, and an interview the depth and breadth of which is unmatched in my experience. I was so impressed not only with the interviewer’s insight into my film, but his comprehensive knowledge of surrounding issues pertinent to the film’s point. I love the message of the festival and deeply appreciate all that they are doing to bring film into activism and change. Many, many thanks to the FearFighters’ team!

    Fear Fighters was just the kind of festival I was looking for where the promoters asked thought-provoking questions and their goal was to give voice to victims of injustice.
