I highly recommend attending and submitting your film to Hoboken International Film Festival (“HIFF”), one of the top ten biggest film festivals in the world. The early bird deadline for submissions for screenplays, television pilots, narrative short films, narrative feature films and documentary films is November 15, 2012. Speaking from experience, it is a great networking event and can help to further your film career along at warp speed.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: Now in its eighth year, the 2013 HIFF will be held May 31 to June 6, 2013 in New Jersey. A Gold Coast/Hudson River event, HIFF will showcase numerous film and TV stars.

Showcasing the edgiest domestic and international movies and their filmmakers, HIFF will kick off on May 31, 2013 with The Filmmakers Reception and The Opening Night Screenings.
