WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Williamstown Film Festival, which has been hailed as "a world-class festival with a small-town heart," and will celebrate its 15th Anniversary Season in the Berkshires this fall, is now accepting submissions.
The WFF annually considers a broad spectrum of work: narrative, documentaries, animation, shorts and features. First-time filmmakers are especially encouraged to submit work. Since 1999, WFF has screened world, American, East Coast, and New England premieres of more than 400 titles at Images Cinema, MASS MoCA, the Clark Art Institute, and the ‘62 Center for Theatre and Dance.
Applicants may go to williamstownfilmfest.com and click on "Submit a Film," then apply, either through Withoutabox or by downloading the PDF entry form. Fees are on a rising scale over several submission periods, with the final deadline in August. Artists whose films are chosen for this year’s Festival will be notified by mid-September.
WFF’s 15th Anniversary Season will run Oct. 30 through Nov. 3. A slide show of images from last season is currently viewable at williamstownfilmfest.com.
