Category Rules

IMPORTANT: NewFilmmakers screens usually every Wednesday night year round in New York City and monthly in Los Angeles. FESTIVAL DATES displayed on the Withoutabox listing are for expiration of this listing NOT the actual notification or screening dates.

We screen year round. We program on a quarterly basis so our notification dates are approximate. You may hear from us earlier. If you are not selected for the current season, your submission will be rolled over to the next season; you do not need to resubmit your work.

NewFilmmakers is designed to showcase innovative work by new filmmakers who may (or may not) have been overlooked by other festivals. For the most part this means first and second efforts by filmmakers in the short or feature categories. However, only you can determine whether you are a "new" filmmaker or not, and all submissions are considered and welcome.

Filmmakers must have a film they are proud to screen and promote at NewFilmmakers.

Thank You.
