Who we are

FilmFest is a service operated by L’Agence du court métrage which allows festivals to manage their call for entries and directors and producers to submit their films to numerous festivals.

This tool was created in 2007 and carried out by the institutions of the industry (SRF – Film Directors Society, SPI – Independent Producers Union, Carrefour des Festivals and L’Agence du court métrage) in order to organize short film screenings in festivals as well as normalize and unify film submission procedures in accordance with a common quality charter.

In the process of cultural town and city planning and with a very reasonable pricing policy targeting all kinds of festivals, even the smallest, FilmFest is a shared and performing tool which allows festivals to manage film registrations. It also simplifies procedures for right owners (producers and directors) when submitting their films to festivals.

A new version of the website was launched in February 2015 allowing for example right owners to upload films directly to the platform instead of sending DVDs and enabling online screening by festival programmers through a module integrated to the system.

A global redesign was done in September 2022 in order to keep developing in a competitive environment. This new version of the platform offers this tool a whole new design, new features, and a new economic model with a free offer for the smallest festivals. The Platform, available in French and in English, also welcomes festivals with submissions fees.
