Deadline to submit to KIDS FIRST! February 28

January 6th, 2017

Submit.2017.Jan.Feb.Horiz.jpgWe are accepting submissions for KIDS FIRST! Endorsement and Film Festival now through February 28. A KIDS FIRST! endorsement is recognized by media industry leaders and can open doors for you to get your film into distribution and into the hands of your audience.
If you have a great film for kids and families that you wish to get played at venues all across the country, this is your opportunity to submit it. We have more than 50 venue affiliates who use the programming we select for their you and family programs. Each KIDS FIRST! venue partner offers their own awards and prizes. So, there are a plethora of potential awards awaiting you. Just think, for one entry fee, you have 50 venues looking at your submission. That makes the fee dirt cheap!

Accepted feature films will get a First Look opportunity for distribution by Engine 15 Media Group and Soundview Media Partners. We are looking for indie and student productions, short, features and documentaries. We have special categories for Faith Based programs, Spanish language programs, environmental programs and episodic titles.

To enter, go here.
