Cindependent Film Festival EARLYBIRD Deadline is OVER


Filmmakers and writers still have two months to enter work for consideration

Cincinnati, OH ( March 15, 2019) - In just a few short months, the Cindependent Film Festival has received more than 200 film and screenplay submissions! CFF has once again partnered with FilmFreeway ( this year to provide artists from across the country an easy and affordable way to submit their work.

The earlybird deadline ended on February 28th, with submissions costing only $10. Plenty took advantage, with a total of 217 short films, screenplays, feature films and more collected for the CFF judging panel to decide on what will make the cut for the 2019 festival. The regular deadline, still a bargain at only $15, is April 24th, 2019.

Evaluating the current films and screenplays, founder and creative director Allyson West said, “I am overwhelmed with the impressive submissions we are receiving so far this year! It's rewarding to have last year's hard work pay off with more amazing stories from more amazing filmmakers. I can't wait to watch them all and develop our 2019 program!”

The reputation of the Cindependent Film Festival is spreading! This same time last year, the festival had received less than half the amount of submissions currently being considered. Following the success of the first year, CFF was named one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Film Festivals by FilmFreeway and this year has partnered with Drive House Media for a unique opportunity for one lucky and talented filmmaker to pitch a short film and have it completely produced by DMH and then premier at the Cindependent Film Festival on opening night!
