50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee in 2018

Annual Lists

Heartland International Film Festival 

Indianapolis, Indiana / October 11-21, 2018 / heartlandfilm.org / A

Regardless of acceptance, Heartland International Film Festival makes sure that “a minimum of one to three human beings” will give feedback on the entirety of your submitted film; some moviemakers have managed to get in after making changes based on the notes. HIFF gave new meaning to the term “consolation prize” in 2017, introducing a $1,000 prize for each narrative feature and documentary feature finalist not chosen for the $25,000 Grand Prize in their respective categories, plus $500 for each non-winning finalist in the narrative, documentary, and animated short categories. As if that deal isn’t sweet enough, alumni are in the clear to submit free for life, and even making a referral will land you a discounted waiver.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”

      Hi Jon,

      Thanks so much for your feedback. Keep an eye out for our upcoming “25 Coolest Film Fests” in our Summer issue (newsstands 7/24). Lots of LGBT Fest representation!

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
