Deadline to submit a movie : March 1st 2016

The Anarchist Film Festival is back for its second year!

This year, we would like to encourage people from radical communities, folks from indigenous communities, POCs, women/queer/trans*, to produce movies about topics of interest to them for the AFF. No need to be industry approved to create radical cinema! (If you decide to create a film for the AFF and you face technical challenges, please feel free to write us for support)
