Attention Filmmakers: The Kickstarter Film Festival is Accepting Submissions

The Kickstarter Film Festival has begun accepting submission for its annual celebration-slash-showcase of successfully executed projects from across the Kickstarter community. The festival is scheduled to take place this summer in New York City, as well as a few other cities that are still to be determined.

Per the festival’s home page, submission requirements are as follows:
– Your work must be the product of a successfully funded Kickstarter project. It doesn’t matter which creative category your project was originally under, just that the work itself be film or video funded on Kickstarter. 
– Your work needs to have been finished within the last year — any time from January 2013 to the present. Filmmakers submitting feature-length work, please note: We’ll be showing selections, not full films, so make sure you choose an excerpt that holds up on its own. Works in progress are also totally fine and encouraged! In past years we’ve screened selections from rough cuts and sneak previews.

Submissions will remain open until 11:59pm EST on May 14. Kickstarter has the excerpts from projects screened at last year’s festival available online for viewing.
