The New York International Latino Film Festival has officially opened up its call for submissions, and your films are due March 31st.

Launched in 1999, the New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) is now the premier Urban Latino film event in the country. The NYILFF’s mission is to showcase the works of the hottest emerging Latino filmmaking talent in the U.S. and Latin America, offer expansive images of the Latino experience, and celebrate the diversity and spirit of the Latino community. Programming includes the flagship film festival in NYC, new music and art showcases, family and community events, awards for filmmakers, and a nationally recognized short film competition in partnership with HBO. The NYILFF is the only film event to have had the endorsement of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s NYC Latin Media and Entertainment Commission since its formation in 2003.

Submissions can be made by registering and uploading on Withoutabox in any of six categories. What’s more, the NYILFF short film script competition allows you to submit a script for production – winning scripts will be given a budget and screened before every program. Be
