BAMcinemaFest Film Submissions

To submit your film for BAMcinemaFest, please complete the form below. Electronic submissions are required and must include links to a trailer or screener of the completed film. Screeners are accepted via streaming link ONLY; please do not mail DVDs.

New work is primarily considered for BAMcinemaFest, and must have New York Premiere status (no previous screenings in New York State). BAMcinemaFest submissions are only accepted from January 1 through April 1; materials received outside the submission window will not be reviewed for the festival.

Due to high demand and limited availability, the programming team will respond only to submissions being seriously considered for the program.

Please note, due to ongoing COVID-19 closures, plans for a 2021 festival are still in flux. At this time we are only accepting submissions for short films (less than 60min in length).
