A smarter way to submit to film festivals

We've made quite a few changes recently at YoungCuts. Visit our new "Submission Services" tab to find out how YoungCuts is growing and changing the way filmmakers and film festivals work together.

In the Submission Services area of our website, you can now join our acclaimed Submission Service. With this service, YoungCuts helps filmmakers find other high potential festivals looking for short films. Using this service, filmmakers can participate in numerous high potential film festivals at specially negotiated prices. See what other filmmakers are saying about the service.

Filmmakers can also choose to join our popular Pay-When-Selected Service. With this service, filmmakers only pay when their film becomes a film festival's Official Selection. Want to know more? Click Here, or visit "How the Submission Service Works" under the Services tab.

Sign up to the 2014 YoungCuts Film Festival today. Submitting to YoungCuts gets you exclusive access to the most promising film festivals around the world!. Find out more about the new submission service here.
