Films with premieres before March 2022 are not eligible. All films must be Montpelier, VT premieres. If you have questions about eligibility, please contact programmer@gmffestival.org.

If your film is not in English, please submit it with English subtitles.

The filmmaker guarantees that they have legal right to submit their film to the 2024 Green Mountain Film Festival and have obtained all necessary rights and clearances to have it publicly screened during the festival dates. Submission of the film confirms that the Green Mountain Film Festival has permission to exhibit the work at the 2024 festival, should it be accepted.
