|Throughout the years we have focused on
developing film festivals that build a path to your continued success.
All our festivals have helped hundreds of filmmakers from all over the world get the recognition they deserve by giving them exposure, a truly deserved award and, a chance for distribution with long established worldwide distributors.
We created our festivals implementing a rule none of the others have: if your film gets rejected we will let you know why and give you a chance to fix it, then re-submit for free before we close submissions or, the following season.
Welcome to the Nature Without Borders International Film Festival, where distribution and exposure opportunities abound.
NWBIFF is a sister festival to the Docs Without Borders International Film Festival and the Depth of Field International Film Festival, a Film freeway “Top 100 Reviewed” festival.
NWBIFF accepts worldwide Films/Documentaries under many major categories and sub-categories.
Over the years, our sister festivals have sent hundreds of winning films to long established Distribution companies, many signing for distribution. NWBIFF operates with that same vantage! Your top award with NWBIFF gets you into our distributor review group.
Don’t forget Feedback: The one element most festivals ignore.
Everyone who submits to the Nature Without Borders International Film Festival will receive either of two benefits:
1): your film is already competition caliber and receives Official Selection status OR
2): If rejected, you will receive a letter outlining what it is about your film that is keeping it from being accepted.
This gives you the chance to make corrections to your film:
- Helps you to improve your product and its marketability
- Enhances your ability to be accepted at other festivals besides ours.
