Now in it's fifth year, the Festive Film Festival has become a holiday favorite among audiences. One night only in mid-December the festival screens 2 hours of Holiday-themed films.

An audience-voted award is given to the top three films. We award certificates the same night.

Top prize for audience favorite will be the Golden Fruitcake Award.

1.Films can be in any language but must include English subtitles.
2. Films must be under 20 minutes long.
3. Films must have been completed in the last 10 years.
4. Films must have a Holiday (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, Chinese New Year, Festivus, New Year's, Winter Solstice, etc.) or winter theme.
5. Submit your film exclusively via FilmFreeway using a vimeo or youtube link.
Upon submission you agree to allow Festive Film Festival to screen your film (if accepted) at our festival and use stills and promotional materials as we see fit.

    Had a great time at the Festive Film Festival! The venue was perfect and the selected videos were fantastic. The crowd turnout was a bit low, but not too shabby. Met a couple of interesting filmmakers and had a lot of fun!

    We were so honored that "Home Invasion for the Holidays" won the audience award at Festive Film Festival! We were not able to be there in person, but there was great communication and it seemed like a fun event.
