Call for Submissions for Rough Cuts in November

Rough Cuts is currently accepting submissions for our next event on Thursday, November 2nd, 2017. If you are editing a documentary that is over 40 minutes long and are seeking feedback, we encourage you to submit. The deadline to submit is Wednesday, October 11th.

Principal photography should have been completed, and we encourage filmmakers to submit films that are in the later stages of post-production (i.e. NOT first or second cuts).

To submit your film, please fill out the Rough Cuts online application.

There is a $25 submission fee that defrays the costs of our events and programs.

Finally, please note that filmmakers who are selected for Rough Cuts are eligible for Fine Cuts. Fine Cuts is our consultation program that pairs our filmmakers with established editors and directors. These editorial consultants work with the filmmaker in an effort to respond to the feedback at Rough Cuts and, also, develop and fine-tune the film as the cut approaches picture lock.
