Are there any situations where you are able to offer fee waivers?
A submission fee is something we require to facilitate a full analysis of the work we receive. We do need to cover our costs to host on the platforms we use. We use these platforms to ensure that we have the widest reach possible. This means, more eyes on your films!
Professional Members of the Lift-Off Network have access to unlimited fee waivers for all of our 25 city-based festival and in-house showcases, based in Pinewood studios.

We also have two free to submit to festivals called Lift-Off Sessions and First-Time Filmmaker Sessions, in which anyone can apply to! You can find these here:
