The Poe Film Festival is not currently accepting pitches or scripts other than through the contest format.

With expanded screen time at the Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU, and thanks to our venue sponsor Robertson School of Media and Culture, the 2019 Pro Film Awards will increase the number of its Official Selection films.

And what a year to do it!

Submissions this year are up about 25 percent and the quality of the storytelling is amazing.  From documentaries, to adaptations of Poe and other authors, and of course original stories, these 2019 films are exciting.  Our festival staff is geeked about the entertainment we’re about to unleash on Richmond during the last week of October.

We’re looking for more, too.  Our late deadline for submissions is July 8 on FilmFreeway and Withoutabox.

We can’t wait to meet these talented indie filmmakers in America’s most intriguing city this fall.
