VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

Our categories span various areas of the film genre. We attempt to limit each category to no more than five films or people. The only way to submit a film entry is through film freeway. Entries will open up in late Spring. The best way to keep up to date on providing to our film fest is to sign up for our filmmaker’s newsletter (Link Coming Soon)

Strasburg Film Festival proudly accepts entries via FilmFreeway, the world’s #1 submission platform. FilmFreeway offers free HD screeners, unlimited video storage, filmmaker profiles, and more.

(Whispers: FilmFreeway told us to say this. Seriously, though, we only use FilmFreeway because we love their ease of use and customer service.)

This award is for the best of the best. We’re looking for a film that will have the “WOW” factor.  The entry can be any length and any genre of film. All films that win in other categories, go up against each other for the Grand Jury Prize. We annouce all winners during the Film Festivial. Here is a list, with a link to its trailer (if available) of previous winners.

Animation comes in various forms and fashions. It’s frankly one of our favorite categories because there’s a lot of variety in what is submitted to us.   Here is a list, with a link to its trailer (if available) of previous winners.

The theme could cover any angle. However, some films will not take that long to tell. Keep it short but sweet. Here is a list, with a link to its trailer (if available) of previous winners.
