Call For Entries

What if I don't want to submit through

  • We encourage entrants to submit their films through Withoutabox for a streamlined, efficient submission process. If unsure how to submit through Withoutabox, check out their Support page here.
  • As an alternative, we are now inviting entrants to submit through our direct online submission platform, right here on the CIFF website. To submit through our Online Entry Form, click here , fill in the digital form completely, and pay the corresponding entry fee by credit card. Through our system you can submit your film by Vimeo link or by sending in 3 DVDs, each clearly labeled with the film’s Title, Director, and Total Runtime.
