PUSH! Film Festival Now Accepting Submissions

January 23, 2018

Mark your calendars! PUSH! Film Festival is returning to Historic Downtown Bristol, Virginia and Tennessee for a fourth year! The Festival plans to host a variety of curated movies, workshops and presentations about film, along with screenings of juried films including shorts, features, and films focused on Tennessee and Virginia over the course of a three – day weekend on October 12th – 14th, 2018.

PUSH! is now accepting film submissions for the 2018 Festival. The opening date has been moved to January 17th as opposed to March, which has traditionally been the time that PUSH! has opened for film submissions.

“Opening earlier in the year, allows the Programming committee to go through its process of selecting films and to coordinate with the Festival’s film jurors, but also allows the Marketing and Logistics committees to coordinate their efforts with better ease as the Festival gets closer in October,” said Jessica Barnett, PUSH! Film Festival Programming Chair. “Over the last three years we’ve matured as a Festival. Going into this year, we wanted to look at what we could tweak to make our planning better and easier for the committees and for our filmmakers.”

Filmmakers who wish to submit their films to PUSH! Film Festival will need to visit www.pushfilmfest.com for information on film categories, awards, and more.
