Philadelphia’s Big Bang Film Festival Is Seeking Submissions

The Big Bang Film Festival (BBFF), which will take place October 17-21 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is seeking submissions. Focusing on action, adventure, suspense, and Asian action films, the festival is poised to showcase the work of bold new American and international filmmakers working in these genres.

Entries must be submitted on VHS or DVD, and may be submitted in the following categories: Feature Narrative, Short Narrative, Experimental, Documentary, and Animation. Foreign language films may be submitted, but they must have English subtitles.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketBBFF's regular deadline has just been extended to June 15, 2007, but filmmakers have until August 24 to submit. Submissions may be made via mail (entry forms can be downloaded at BBFF's website) or online through Without A Box.
