Submit a film

Reel Queer Inc welcomes submissions of narrative feature films and documentaries for Out Takes. We are not running a full festival in 2015 but will be presenting some fundraising screenings of new queer films through 2015 and 2016. We cannot commit to presenting short films at these screenings, but do welcome short film submissions for consideration for our 2016 programme.

There are no entry fees.

However, we are arranging some special screenings prior to the 2015 festival and films submitted early may be considered for such screenings. Such films may act as fundraisers, or may be screened at special events held by New Zealand's queer community.

New Zealand submissions

We are interested in hearing from New Zealand filmmakers all year round.  Tell us about your project and we can offer encouragement and assistance.

We may also have or be able to facilitate additional screening opportunities for New Zealand films.

Submission form

Our submission form is available in two formats:

Email the form and submit a preview

You can email our programmers a link to preview your film online, or send us a DVD to our courier or postal addresses.

If your film is selected for Out Takes screenings we will need you to send a DVD because the New Zealand film classification (censorship) authorities require a DVD.

We are not able to return DVDs.
