L-DUB Film Festival is looking for an innovative selection of work across a variety of genres from music videos, shorts and documentaries to full length features.
Our mission is to celebrate the art of filmaking, provide industry collaboration opportunities for emerging filmmakers and outlets for filmmakers to present their work to an audience and gain recognition from their peers, the public and industry professionals.

We encourage submissions from S. Florida filmmakers and artists from around the globe. All age levels and experience are encouraged. We have had winning entries from 8 yr old filmmakers and entries that have gone on to be short listed forthe Oscars and screened in showcases at Cannes. L-DUB is a festival for the eye and the mind. No genre is overlooked. We pride our festival as a venue for new filmmakers.

This year we are looking out for movies about art and/or artists and movies with LBGTQ themes (but not exclusively we are still open to everything). We are working closely with several local art galleries as sponsors and venues. This year's festival coincides with Lake Worth's long running and well attended Pride Festival and we would like to join the celebration with our brothers and sisters.

    I got an email telling me that my film was selected, great. but then even when I send a thanks letter asking for the date, they never aswerd, never saw the film in the program, so I wasent able to go or else, the web page says nothing.

    The L-Dub Film Festival is a fun & intimate festival surrounded by the cool, artsy and eccentric atmosphere of downtown Lake Worth. The hospitality toward filmmakers and attendees is second to none. It's a venue that truly supports the artistic spirit. My only wish is that the festival would be promoted more and more filmmakers submit to the festival. The greater number of films that are submitted only helps bring a fuller, richer and more comprehensive film experience to everyone.
    I would and will submit my films again and only see this festival growing in it's attendance, quality and reputation.
