The End of Days Film Festival showcases short action, sci-fi, horror, drama, and comedy films portraying an imminent threat to an individual, society, or the world. We love apocalyptic themed movies but are open to everything as long as it had a good story line! Submissions must be less than 25 minutes and produced within the past 3 years.

FILM ACCEPTANCE AND SCREENING PROCESS
The End of Days Film Festival accepts a large number of films as Official Selections to represent the EOD Film Festival. However, due to limited screening availability, only a select number of films will screen.
Judges will review all the films submitted to the End of Days Film Festival. After a thorough review, EOD staff will accept films that meet the End of Days Film Festival standards. *Not all accepted films will screen at the End of Days Film Festival. Filmmakers will be notified of their films acceptance status via Filmfreeway.
Accepted films will then be reviewed and nominated for awards. Filmmakers will be notified by EOD staff of their nomination. Award nomination laurels will be given to all nominated films. Winners will then be chosen and announced.
Films chosen for screening will be downloaded from FilmFreeway website. They will be screened in the format you uploaded to the FilmFreeway website. If your film is screened, you will have an opportunity to provide EOD with an updated version of the film.
The End of Days Film Festival Organizers may add to or amend these rules at any time without notice.
