Click on “submit a film” at the top of the page and fill out the Submission Form. Payments are collected through paypal. Once you’ve paid your submission fee, you will be directed to a dropbox page to upload your film. Please make sure to include your name and the name of the film in your file name so we know which film is yours!
Our film festival has a 20 minute time limit but we encourage those with longer films to submit a shorter edit or excerpt to keep within that time frame.
We will be screening the top films in each category. You will be notified in advance if your film has qualified for screening. If so, you will receive two complimentary passes to the event. The Leavenworth Film Festival is a film contest and by entering the festival we do not guarantee that your film will be screened.

Do I get into the Festival Event for free if I submit a film? All submitters receive one free entry into the festival. If your film is chosen for screening, you will receive two free passes into the event.

We require all rights be obtained by the filmmaker. By signing our terms and conditions you are agreeing to this requirement.
