If you’re a filmmaker looking for a big break, now might be your chance.

The FFF features competitions for narrative and animated short films, documentary shorts and features, narrative feature films, and international films. It’s also an Academy Award-qualifying festival – the winner of the Grand Jury Award for best live-action short, the best animated short, and the best documentary short film will qualify to be considered for the year’s Oscar Awards. The winners are chosen by a jury of film professions and an audience vote.
