Only 48 Hours Left in our Regular Deadline

Time is running out to submit your film for the 2016 Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival!

Our "Regular" submission period ends in just two days on August 31st, which means we're getting closer and closer to this year's festival in November.

We'll still be accepting films through the month of September as a "Last Chance" submission period. However, it's always recommended to get your films in early to make sure you don't miss the deadline AND after this month, the submission fee increases for this final deadline. Films will not be accepted after the final deadline.

So don't wait! Submit your film, documentary, short, web series, music video, or student film today at

If you're involved in a local business and are interested in sponsoring this year's fest through on-screen advertising, spots are limited so email us today or visit for a list of sponsorship options. Custom packages can also be created based on your business' needs.

Panels & Workshops
We're also in the process of arranging a series of free panels and workshops to benefit attending filmmakers and Celluloid would love to hear what you'd like to learn. Send us a quick reply to this email if with your idea for a workshop or panel discussion.

Celluloid on BCB!
Festival Director, Matt Longmire, sat down with Barry Peters over at Bainbridge Community Broadcasting to record an episode of "What's Up Bainbridge?" to talk about all things Celluloid. This 15-minute episode is a great run down of what's exciting about this year's festival and what you can expect in November.

Take a listen and keep an ear out for more episodes in the future on the BCB Podcast.

SeaDocs & DocForest
Each year, SeaDocs (or the Seattle Documentary Association) puts on an incredible event called "DocForest" where a group of around 20-30 documentary filmmakers spend a weekend camping, sharing projects their working on, attending campfire-side lectures, and networking with potential collaborators.

This year, DocForest runs September 16th-18th and a few tickets are still available at

We're proud to partner with SeaDocs at this year's Celluloid through a documentary panel discussion at the festival. Details to be announced at a later date.

More news to come as we prepare for Celluloid 2016!
