Calling all Filmmakers

Last year the South Texas International Film Festival received over 130 film submissions from over 30 countries all over the world. Submit your film for a chance to be a part of the 2018 lineup and win cash prizes and award statues. In 2018 the STXIFF is establishing it's first regional film catagory. Top awards and prizes will go to the Best Feature Film, Best Short Film and Best Regional Film. Film submissions will be accepted for the Festival starting December 2017 and will run through May 25th, 2018. All award winners will be chosen by the official STXIFF panel of jurors. 

 

Submission Guidelines

  • Films between 60 and 120 minutes in length should be submitted as feature length films.
  • For a film to be considered for the Regional Film category a majority of the production and post production should take place  within the South Texas Region. Hereon, the term “Regional” will refer to the Texas Southern regions and is defined by all counties from Bexar to Cameron and Hidalgo counties (from North to South), and includes from El Paso to Brownsville, West to East.
  • The 2018 selection committee will look favorably on submissions that share narratives that are not often seen in main stream media.
  • The selection committee will also look favorably on submissions that feature a unique visual or structural style.
  • Documentaries will be accepted into competition for this year. 
  • Submissions will only be accepted online through withoutabox.com and fiilmfreeway.com unless an alternative submission option is recommended by the festival due to specific circumstance or hardships.
