why submit to klipist?
So many amazing short projects only get seen during a film festival run or by friends and family, and afterwards, disappear in the abyss of the online jungle. We want to change that. Klipist is the never-ending film festival for your film. Our mission is to connect you with a global audience by offering a supportive and appreciative place for your film. We make your film accessible and market it, so people can discover your work, and hopefully create future collaborations and opportunities for you.
Your film will be non-exclusive on Klipist, so you can still have, submit, and show it anywhere you wish. If you wish to have it exclusively on Klipist, we can label it as “Klipist Exclusive” and give it a premium marketing boost.
You retain full ownership and any intellectual property rights associated with your film. You are responsible to have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, releases, and permissions for us to stream it.
Go-live and availability of the film is entirely flexible, and if you wish to remove a film from our platform, we will do so within 48 hours’ notice. We predict that your film will be available for at least the first year of going live.
shorts up to 40 min
We accept all short films and short documentaries with up to 40-minutes runtime.
All languages and countries are welcome. If the spoken language is not English, the film will need to have English subtitles.
what we look for
Above all, we value great stories and characters that make us feel something. We also love stories that aren't usually told and underrepresented, films that intrigue, question, and make us wonder. Wonder how it was filmed, how you found such amazing actors, how you wrote such a good script, how you brilliantly edited the image and sound. Heart, talent and dedication, that's what moves us.
submit a film
As with other festivals, your fee is paid for your film to be considered. By no means does submitting your film guarantee that your film will be accepted for Klipist. If your film is not accepted, the submission fee is not refunded. Therefore please make absolutely sure you want to submit your film before doing so.
Your work will be watched in full by several members of our team and undergo a selection process. We promise that every film is given full consideration. We will get back to you within 14 days if your project has been accepted to Klipist’s Streaming Platform.
If your film is accepted, there will be no further fees. All marketing, hosting and organisational work is covered with your submission fee.
