Film Fests & More
While the Daddying Film Festival & Forum (D3F) is the first and only festival to focus its spotlight exclusively on the importance of Dads/Dad figures, both in their presence and absence, there is a growing number of indie film festivals, large and small, for you to explore and enjoy all over the world – short film fests, open and genre-specific fests, screenplay competitions, in-person, online, and hybrid festivals like D3F.
Once you've completed a film/video to submit to D3F, you might be interested in pursuing other opportunities to submit elsewhere. To help you begin your search for future festival targets, we thought we'd curate a list of other festivals that might be a good fit for your D3F film/video...or a future production. Check out these festivals and filmmaking programs and their submission/registration requirements:
Kids In the Spotlight Short Screenplay Competition
Washington, DC International Film Festival

Albuquerque Film & Music Experience (ABQX)
