EIFF Submissions

EIFF Submissions will open Tuesday 3 November 2015

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.

We are 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.

In 2016 the Festival will be celebrating it's 70th edition. Submissions for the 2016 Festival will open on Tuesday 3 November 2015.

The 70th EIFF will run from 15-26 June 2016.
