Here Are Your TFF 2015 Festival Dates & Submission Deadlines

It’s that time of year again! Filmmakers (and Festival enthusiasts), mark your calendars.

Filmmakers and film fans, rejoice! The 14th annual Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, will be held April 15– April 26, 2015, right here in New York City.  We’re pleased to announce our call for submissions for narrative features, documentary features, short film entries and transmedia projects.

In keeping with our mission, TFF both supports and celebrates both new indie voices and established directors from all around the world. (And whether you're a filmmaker or a Festival fan, enjoy this new video we made with none other than Ron Howard!)

In addition to our usual screenings of feature and short length films, curated conversations, and master classes, the 2015 Festival will feature the returns of several wildly popular programs: Storyscapes, Tribeca’s celebrated transmedia section in collaboration with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin; the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival; and, the second edition of Tribeca Innovation Week.
