We know short films. We know short filmmakers. And now, for the first year ever, we will get to know features! 

We know the things that are important for your hard-fought film in the festival circuit: an audience. New connections to amplify your craft and career. The personal development that comes from seeing the work of your peers, and memories that will last a lifetime through parties and engagement with the festival's local community. We fight hard to find the best filmmaking has to offer our audience, and we fight hard to bring an unparalleled festival experience to the short & feature filmmaker.

Submission Platforms

Filmstock has been proud to be a partner of Withoutabox for the last year of submissions. However, this year we wanted to offer an even broader range of submissions platforms, so in 2016 we have partnered with FilmFreeway! This additional platform allows for convenient links, submission forms and high-quality Vimeo integration. However, Withoutabox is the only submission platform that will fast-track your film to an IMDB page. Make your choice on submission vehicle and we look forward to seeing your film!
