Call for Entries
We’re currently on the lookout for features and shorts to showcase at next summer’s event, for our 19th edition. What exactly are we looking for? While predominantly a fantastic film festival, Fantasia has always embraced films whose sheer individuality puts them in a genre of their own. If you’re not sure whether your film is right for us, consider that we’ve showcased everything from captivating dramas, eccentric comedies, provocative documentaries, mind-blowing experimental works, musicals, even atypical children’s films. In other words, set our minds’ eyes on fire and we’ll do everything possible to get your film seen. Feel free to browse our 2014 website for a better understanding of our programming tastes.
Any work produced in the past 18 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public’s Prize.
Our entry fees are low, with no charges at all for Canadian productions of any length – and we encourage filmmakers and companies of all backgrounds, interests and obsessions to submit their work.
How To Submit
Please fill out the online entry form and send your screener(s) on DVD to the Festival office along with the appropriate entry fee. The screener(s) and other promotional materials will not be sent back. We will consider all films received by 5pm, May 1st, 2016. Due to the considerable amount of submissions we receive every year, only the creators of the selected films will be contacted by us.
On behalf of the entire Fantasia team,
Co-Director Of International Programming
