1.  Film and screenplay submissions accepted through Withoutabox only.  If you don’t have an account, please sign up with them directly in order to submit to the Woods Hole Film Festival.  Do not send an email with a link to your film or screenplay as that will not be considered a festival submission.

4.   Only complete submissions will be eligible to screen in competition.  A film that screens in competition is eligible for both an audience award and a jury award.   Screenplay submissions are eligible only for  a jury award.  Awards are presented at the awards ceremony on the closing night of the Festival.

5.  Each film is allocated one competition screening, although additional screenings may be scheduled during the Festival.  Filmmakers will be notified of the screening schedule at least one month prior to the Festival and are encouraged to attend their screenings and to be available for the post-screening Q&A.

    Finally, after surfing http://www.festivalgenius.com/blog/2013/30931/
    for quite some time, I got a blog from where I was able to actually grab useful facts regarding the
    studies and the knowledge that I want. There need to be more things
    like this on Serendipity

    The above website shows an extended deadline for submission of feature screenplays on Without A Box, but the website at Without A Box has an April 10 deadline and won’t allow later submissions. What gives?

  3. What’s up, I read your blog like every week. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!
