Submissions are now open and filmmakers are invited to submit narrative, documentary, experimental, animated and short films at AFI FEST's website or through WithoutABox

The final submission deadline for feature films is August 16, and the final deadline for shorts is August 2. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognizes AFI FEST as an Oscar-qualifying festival in the Short Films category.
