According to a press release, this year’s entries may be up to 15 minutes long, including credits, up from 12 minutes last year.

Also, due to the increase in submissions over the past few years, the 2020 VISFF will be showing twice as many films.

Local filmmakers enter the festival for free, with two spots reserved for Island-made films.

To submit a film, use the FilmFreeway link at the VISFF website. For more information, contact submissions@visff.com. Submissions are due on Nov. 4.
