The Traverse City Film Festival is by invitation only, but we’d love to see your films and suggestions. Filmmakers may submit their films unofficially and they will be passed on to the programmer. There is no submission fee, and also no feedback mechanism — we cannot guarantee that your film will be viewed.

Submissions are now open for the 2018 festival. Deadline to submit is Friday, June 1 at 11:59 pm. Submitters will need to register for an account. We prefer that you include links to high quality online version of films, but if no digital file is available, you may mail a Blu-Ray or DVD copy to TCFF Submissions, PO Box 4064, Traverse City MI 49685. Screeners cannot be returned.
