Attention filmmakers! Do you have a complete or close-to-complete film you would like to see screened at our upcoming festival in June 2019? The Nickel is currently on the hunt for submissions of films for next year — from shorts to features, from DIY to pro. Any genre, any style. For more of an idea of who we are and what we screen, check out our printed festival program from 2018.

The only way to submit a film for consideration for our festival is at our page at Film Freeway.

We and our audiences love local films and are committed to screening 40% local or more. If you are a local filmmaker, please email elling@nickelfestival.com to request a discount code. There are a limited number of discount codes available.

The upcoming regular deadline is January 18, 2019. We recommend you submit your film as soon as possible, however, since our programming committee is already hard at work going through screeners and making decisions for the festival.

Please submit at the link below. Thank you, and good luck!
