The American Film Institute's AFI Fest, famous for being free-to-the-public and partnered with the American Film Market, has announced dates and submission deadlines for the 28th edition.
AFI Fest 2014 will take place November 6 through 13 in Hollywood, CA, and submissions are now open for filmmakers to submit narrative, documentary, experimental, animated and short films at AFI.com/AFIFEST or through Withoutabox.com. The deadlines for early submission (for both shorts and features) is June 27th, and August 8th for final submission.
