Films & Screenplays
The United Film Festival offers the opportunity for filmmakers to submit to six unique festivals in Los Angeles, New York, London, San Francisco, Chicago, and Tulsa. With a different programming committee in each city along with rolling deadlines, they are able to showcase a diverse line-up of narratives, documentaries, and shorts.
UFF offer special United Packages to submit to all six cities at once, or three cities of your choosing. Submitters also have the option of adding Feedback to their submission, allowing them to receive notes from our programming committee after the festivals.
UFF Screenwriting Contest offers even more opportunities to both short and feature screenwriters in Comedy, Drama, and Horror/Thriller categories.

Held in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles at two historic venues, UFF takes full advantage of its exciting Hollywood locale, and draws passionate crowds of film-lovers who enjoy the dynamic slate of humorous, touching, and innovative programming presented. Special events at past festivals have included the presentation of Lifetime Achievement Awards to screenwriter Carl Gottlieb (Jaws), actor Dabney Coleman (War Games), and Oscar-nominated director Mark Rydell (On Golden Pond).
