Event Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in listing your event on filmmaking.net. Please review our submission guidelines below before adding your event.

  • Directly related to filmmaking. All events must be directly related to filmmaking and relevant to filmmakers. Examples of acceptable event-types include: short training courses, conferences or lectures, exhibitions or markets, film festivals, social/networking events, and filmmaking competitions. Events that are not related to filmmaking will not be listed.
  • No Film Festival 'Call for Entries' Notices. Please do not post festival 'calls for entry' notices here. This area is for the promotion of the event itself, not activities which may lead up to it. Any calls for entry should be posted in the film festivals group in the Message Boards area of the site.
  • Event Duration. We can only list events which run for up to one month (30 days). If your event runs multiple times over the year you are free to submit each instance as a seperate event. On-going events are not eligible for listing.
  • No film premieres. Sorry, but these are only of interest to a very small number of people and there are just too many to list. Film screening events which incorporate interviews or panels with recognisable industry figures are fine.
  • Festivals/Awards Competitions. Only film festivals which screen films to the public are eligible for listing. Filmmaking.net considers 'festivals' which do not hold public screenings to be scams. Likewise, if your event has a title such as "The [insert glamourous-sounding location] Film Awards" it is also probably a scam and therefore not eligible for listing.
  • Screenplay Competitions. Due to the high number of scams, screenplay competitions are not eligible for listing unless they are verifably associated with a government film agency or high-profile company in the media sector.
  • Events must be submitted in English. filmmaking.net is an English-language site. All events must be submitted in English, regardless of where they will take place.
  • Localise it. filmmaking.net is more than happy for you to submit an event for local filmmakers in your area. However, when entering the details please keep in mind that filmmaking.net speaks to an international audience. Make sure that you are clear about locations, restrictions, and any other relevant information.
  • Submission does not guarantee listing. Listing of an event is completely at the discretion of filmmaking.net. We reserve the right to edit the your submission for appropriate content and/or length. Submissions will not appear on the site until they have been approved by a filmmaking.net editor.
