The Bowery Film Festival selection committee makes all programming decisions. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. Films not selected will receive notification by email. The date of selection emails may not accurately reflect the dates on FilmFreeway.

For our purposes ‘feature’ refers to films 40 minutes and over. ‘Experimental’ refers exclusively to non-narrative, non-documentary works. We reserve the right to re-categorize submissions as we deem appropriate.


Although the art of filmmaking is not competitive, Bowery Film Festival does give awards. The festival jury will present several awards to films and videos selected as best or most interesting in whatever categories they see fit. Additionally, audience awards are decided by the festival audience.
