THE INTERNET'S MOST EXPANSIVE FILM FESTIVAL COVERAGE

Our writers cover film festivals across the globe, every month,from Sundance to Saskatoon, Cannes to Kansas, so that we can bring you the heads-up on what films will be on your screens in the coming year. We cover the heck out of these festivals in search for the one hidden gem that you might otherwise have missed, so keep an eye on this page in the weeks ahead as we search for the filmmakers of the future.

If you run a film festival and would like one (or more) of our writers to attend, with the details of your event and we'll see how it works in our schedule. Similarly, if you have a film in competition that we never got around to seeing, feel free to for screener submission details and we'll catch up quickly enough.
