The call for entry for the 2019 Greenwich International Film Festival has begun!

Submissions are being accepted through 1/15/19

This spring marks GIFF’s 5th Anniversary.  While the Festival continues to grow, the mission remains the same – to provide filmmakers with a platform to showcase their work.  GIFF is committed to harnessing the power of film to serve the greater good by highlighting issues of social impact that affect us all on a global level. The Festival will showcase between 30 and 50 films this year, and we want YOURS!

If you’re considering submitting your work to GIFF, let us persuade you with the top 5 reasons GIFF is the right home to showcase your work:

  1. The 5th Anniversary season is already attracting a tremendous amount of media buzz
  2. GIFF offers cash awards in six categories:
    • Best Social Impact Film
    • Best Narrative Feature Film
    • Best Documentary Feature Film
    • Best Narrative Short Film
    • Best Documentary Short Film
    • Best Connecticut Short Film
  3. The Festival is a great platform for emerging and innovative filmmakers to network with prospective financiers and industry executives
  4. GIFF will roll out the red carpet – those with films in the festival receive travel stipends and an all-access pass to enjoy the events
  5. Greenwich is only 45 minutes from NYC with convenient train access, and all venues during the festival weekend are within a one-mile radius… you don’t even need a car!

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your site. It appears as if some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks|

  2. You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. All the time go after your heart.

  3. One thing I’d prefer to say is the fact car insurance canceling is a terrifying experience and if you’re doing the best things as a driver you won’t get one. Some individuals do obtain the notice that they’ve been officially dumped by their own insurance company and several have to struggle to get additional insurance following a cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are frequently hard to get after having a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons for auto insurance cancellations can help owners prevent getting rid of in one of the most significant privileges available. Thanks for the suggestions shared by your blog.
