Southern States Indie FanFilmFest is dedicated to REAL INDIE FILMMAKERS - not the big studio spinoffs calling themselves as such.

Southern States Indie FanFilmFest also celebrates of the diversity of Americans along our beautiful southern coast - the longstanding Spanish traditions of Texas and Florida, French Creole and Cajun cultures of the former vast Louisiana territory, and the continually evolving cultures of southern blacks and whites. The Southern States are as gloriously diverse as any region on Earth. So in addition to our general call for submissions, we are issuing a call for films with innovative, progressive and balanced stories from and concerning women, peoples of Latin, African, Asian and Middle Eastern descent, Native Americans, LGBTQ community, Seniors and Spanish Language films.
Although films will be accepted from around the world additional Local categories are open for submissions from the following Southern States: Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Arkansas. Affordable subcategories are also available for Students simply by submitting at student rates.
SSIFFF is excited to announce the addition of a Script Writing Contest. SSIFFF 2018, in conjunction with Mississippi Sound Film Productions, LLC, will present the winner of the script competition a $10,000 Film Production Prize Package for their Short Film Script of up to 20 minutes/pages (standard script format) in length.
