Where do I submit my film?

Who can submit a film to the HVFF?

The Hudson Valley Film Fest welcomes submissions from both first-time directors and seasoned filmmakers. We believe in inclusivity and diversity, and we're not too fancy a Fest to consider every film. Everyone, regardless of experience level, has a shot at being part of the Hudson Valley Film Fest.

What makes HVFF different?

The Hudson Valley Film Fest is unique because:

  • Folks can watch indie flicks under the stars at the Drive-In. 

  • We curate a diverse selection of films for an interesting viewing experience for everyone.

  • We will consider ANY submitted film under 25 min. We don't believe there should be any restrictions on damn good indie films. 

  • The HVFF  offers pre-parties, live music, awards ceremony, vendor market, art installations, photo opps, and ...plenty o' popcorn. 🍿
