The American Film Institute announces call for 2014 AFI Fest film submissions

See also

The American Film Institute is one of the oldest, most prestigious film schools in Los Angeles. Some of their alumni read like a who’s who in Hollywood with names like David Lynch and Meryl Streep being two of many examples of AFI alum that are now household names here in the United States and around the world. When they make an announcement that they are now accepting submissions of documentaries, animated, experimental and short films (some of the things on this list fall into more than one category) up and coming filmmakers generally take great notice. This year’s early submission deadline is June 27, 2014 with a submission fee of $30.00 for short films and $50.00 for feature length films. The final submission deadline is August 8, 2014 with a $55.00 fee for short films and a $75.00 fee for feature link films. AFI has defined a “feature length film” as anything over 30 minutes in length. All film submissions must be in DVD format in order to be accepted.

You don’t really need to be a “Hollywood insider” to know that the work they do at the AFI has advanced the art of filmmaking perhaps more than any other institution in Hollywood. They continually fulfill their mission statement to “preserve the history of the motion picture, to honor the artists and their work and to educate the next generation of storytellers.”
