Share Your Creativity
As a community-oriented film festival, we wish to honor your hard work by screening your films in the best possible manner, and by creating a great experience for you at our festival. We encourage dialogue between the filmmaker and the audience, in the belief that this engagement will inspire new ideas, solutions and creativity.
How to submit
Film Submissions are now open for local filmmakers at Film Freeway. Local filmmakers must live in - or have films that are produced in, or connected to - Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito or Santa Clara counties. All ages & levels accepted. Go to our submissions page at FILM FREEWAY for complete details. We're looking forward to seeing your film!
What do we screen?
We are looking for films that are creative, inspiring, powerful, entertaining and reflect our multi-cultural region. We encourage conversations between filmmakers & audience. That can look and sound like anything, so don't stray away from entering your film! It may just blow us away.
