Hey guys - i've been recently considering entering a few of my films into some festivals. They're between 2-5 minutes in length and would be best suited to festivals which like little short fillers like that...and, they're not dialogue-based and are quite basic in terms of production value.

I was wondering if you guys knew of any festivals which you think would take to these films and how I can go about getting them to the festivals.

To give you a better idea of what they are, the films in question can be found below:

Any information would be very useful - i've just began the second year of my film and animation degree: I realise how important it is to get my stuff shown!
Thanks guys!

Every week they send a long list of film festivals.

Somehow I knew the ending of "Dinner of 2" before I watched it.

It was quite good! I liked the foley!

Brilliant - thanks very much Randy, i've gotten onto it already. It looks like a tremendous site!

You're the first person to tell me they'd gotten the ending even before the start...nicely done!

Are there any particular festivals which will be more likely to take films of this production quality and length?

Does it cost money to enter into a festival? If so, how much.

A lot of the smaller festivals are 25-50 $ to enter. There is usually a discount if you submit early.
