EIFF 2013 Submissions are Open
Calling all filmmakers, Submissions for EIFF 2013 are now open! This is your chance to get your film into one of the world's most innovative film festivals and have it premiere to industry and public alike.
We are pleased to announce that submissions for the 2013 Edinburgh International Film Festival are now open. The longest continually-running film festival in the world, EIFF is now preparing its 67th edition. Over the years the Festival has continued to bring UK audiences the most innovative and exciting films from around the world. EIFF's successul 2012 edition reaffirmed the Festival's commitment to artistic exploration in narrative, documentary, experimental and animated film.
EIFF seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work. EIFF is especially interested in films by emerging filmmakers whose work manifests stylistic boldness, strength of form, and the ambition to use the medium in a way that resists cliché.
