Due to the unexpected popularity of Indie Oaks Film Festival, we were swamped with hundreds of submissions from all over the world during our 2016 season!

Gratefully, our volunteers spent many hours reviewing every submission and planning the program to help make Indie Oaks 2016 a huge success! So, in order to make this festival the best it can be with the limited resources we have, we are charging a small submission fee of $10 (students: $7) to help cover the costs of operating this community passion project. Thank you for your support and understanding!

After paying via Paypal, please be sure to finish your submission by clicking “Submit A Film” at the bottom. Then, please check your spam folder for a submission receipt.

Remember, selected films are entitled to 2 tickets to the event, as well as the opportunity to win cash prizes. We thank you for the care, effort, and investment that you’ve undertaken to make YOUR film a reality. We don’t take any submission for granted.
