The Film Collective is a festival featuring short films, music videos , trailers and short documentaries from around the world. We accept short films in any and all genres including Narrative, Documentary, Horror, Experimental, Avant-Garde, Animation, Religious/Spiritual, Gay/Lesbian, Web Series and Disabled filmmakers.. We’ve started a new talk back segment where participating filmmakers get to interact virtually to discuss their work. Our festival is all about diversity, inclusion and showing films which display a wide variety of subject matters. It’s not so important that your film be perfect, does it have a message and make an impact? If so we invite you to submit your film today.

All materials must be no longer than twenty minutes in length including credits. Films must be the sole property of the person(s) submitting. We accept all genre's of film. If selected we require a compressed video file of your film. All selected filmmakers will be given a HARD DEADLINE in which to have their films sent. If the DEADLINE is MISSED your film will be DISQUALIFIED . WE DO NOT EXTEND FEE WAIVERS.

    From Christopher R. Owens, President, CESO Enterprises, Inc. On behalf of CESO ENTERPRISES, INC., Alyssa Dann, Chris Oledude, and all of our production participants, I would like to compliment the organizers and operators of The Film Collective.
    When we created our first music video (which was long enough to be a short film), we knew nothing about film festivals. With the help of FilmFreeway, we started researching. It was indeed exciting to discover this new world and to be so warmly welcomed by the inhabitants!
    To have GEORGE FLOYD: SAY THEIR NAMES selected for inclusion was an honor in and of itself. We were happy to “get the word out” and continue motivating people worldwide to consider the injustices embedded within our nation’s criminal justice system. After all, situations where a powerful segment of the population uses its law enforcement apparatus to abuse and oppress other segments of the population are recognizable in and common to many societies.
    We enjoyed participating on a filmmakers' panel as well!
    We certainly intend to participate again in the future. Peace and stay safe!
