Now we can drive!
16 years at the Hamilton Film Festival, and never a dull one. We managed to pull off a wonderful, hybrid, festival in 2020 that included limited-seating theatrical, the Drive-In, broadcast, and online screening and panel discussions. We know we are able to successfully pivot if needed, and can’t wait to see what YOU bring to our Sweet 16 party this November!

COMING OF AGE: Sweet 16
The theme of the festival this year is COMING OF AGE, with the tagline “Now We Can Drive.” This will be a strong theme throughout the festival, from our Sweet 16 kick off, to our closing films. We'll even be asking the selected filmmakers to dig up a photo of themselves at age 16 for a fun photo montage! Let have some fun this year. You deserve it!

You are welcome to submit movies and scripts that are outside of this theme as we always host programs of comedy, drama, genre, and documentaries. We accept short, mid-length, feature, episodic / series, and screenplays.

NO MORE LATE FEES!
ONE TIER, ALL YEAR, is GOLD!
We know that 2020 was a tough one. This year, we are eliminating ALL deadline price levels and are going with a single, regular deadline, all year.
GOLD members on FilmFreeway will be able to take advantage of our additional Gold Member discounts. Following us on social media is beneficial as throughout the year we post limited time / quantity discount codes that will offer a 16% discount off submission fees.
