How much does it cost to submit to Dead Witch?

That all depends on when you submit. If you wait till the last minute to submit your film, it will cost more. This is to incentivize early submission. For all submission information please visit the, "Submit" tab or visit Dead Witch on FilmFreeway.


Why do I have to pay to submit my film?

​The submission fees Dead Witch collects goes to continue the festival. Putting on a festival like Dead With takes a lot of time and money. Submission fees, ticket sales and sponsorships is how we cover such expenses. 


Can I submit more than one film?

Yes you may. However each submission must be made separately and will be subject to a submission fee.


Can I submit a fan film?

No... While Dead Witch loves fan film, please do not submit a film that uses character you do not own, or have documented permission to use.


What happens if my film is selected?

If your film is selected you will be contacted either by phone or email. If you wish to attend the festival you will be granted two VIP passes that allow you access to all Dead Witch screenings and events. You may also be asked to take part in Q&As events before or after your screening.


If My film is selected, will Dead Witch pay for my travel and ACCOMMODATIONS?

No, all filmmakers are responsible for their own travel and accommodations. However, we are hoping to work out a deal with a local hotel so that we can offer filmmakers a deal on rooms on behalf of the festival. 


Does Dead Witch offer submission waivers?

​Yes, if you are a local filmmaker, currently living in Georgia you can request a local filmmaker waiver. 


I missed the submission deadline, can I still submit?

Sorry, the answer will always be no, no exceptions. Allowing a filmmaker to submit their film after the submission period has ended would not be fair to the other filmmakers who submitted their films on time. Those that have missed the deadline date will have to wait until the next call for submissions.


My movie has already played at another local festival, can I still submit?

Yes you may... However, We do prefer submissions that have not previously screened in the Atlanta area before. However, we will bend on this in some circumstances.
