"The Wild West days of the world’s film festivals are not over." - Film School Rejects

“One of the most opulent experiences an artist can venture...upped on energy and light on rules”- Press Pass LA

Beg, borrow, steal, collaborate- The No Budget Film Festival is looking for the next generation of visionary filmmakers.

The only catch? All films must be made for ZERO dollars.

That’s right. In an era where a multi-million dollar budget constitutes as “indie” and even established artists crowdsource, we want to bring filmmaking back to the people.  The No Budget Film Festival is geared towards finding the next great voices in cinema and giving them a platform to stand on. Now in it’s 4th year, this sold out, red carpet, industry-heavy festival will occur over a week of exciting and unique events including star-studded panels, exclusive (and non stuffy) networking opportunities, parties parties parties, and of course, a packed screening showcasing the most cutting-edge, innovative work created internationally by emerging, thrilling filmmakers.

So pick up a camera, grab your buddies, and get to work! The submission deadline has been extended to August 17th.

Submissions are now closed!
