Application deadline

The annual submission deadline for the 2016-2017 season is on March 25, 2016. Please complete the Independent Lens Online Submission Form if you would like your film to be considered for broadcast. Your application must include a Web link to your secure online screener (e.g. Vimeo) and the password to view your film. This link must remain active until the submissions deadline. We are no longer able to accept DVD screeners.

Please complete all required information on your application in order to have your film considered for broadcast on Independent Lens. A final decision will be emailed to you on or before April 29, 2016. Any submissions received after March 25, 2016 will be considered for the 2017-2018 season. Unfortunately due to budget and time constraints, we are unable to provide feedback. We appreciate your understanding.
