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.

    Had a lovely experience! I was on the west coast and couldn’t attend the actual festival but the communication was solid, the website and markets was great. Thank you 🙏🏻 this was my first festival and I’m so glad it was you!

  • Happy I submitted to this festival. The organizers were prompt and responsive to my questions. Had an amazing talk back with Floyd and other filmmakers during the festival. Honored my film was able to play amongst the other caliber of films that showed. Great experience!
