The Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) has announced its call for submissions for its 12th annual festival scheduled Nov. 3 through 6 at the Capitol Theatre.

The festival highlights films with a focus on the arts, human rights, social justice, climate change, immigration, the refugee crisis and disabilities. It will also screen films on the Covid-19 pandemic that examine the psychological and physical impact on the world.

April Ranck, executive director of the AIFF, said in a DEc. 20 news release: “Films screened at the festival reflect a respect for humanity re style="padding-left: 30px;"gardless of color, gender or religion and are brought to light through various genres of film.”

Finally, 2021 has been an exciting year for our viewers, judges, volunteers, partners and sponsors.  AIFF had the honor of screening three films in the 2021 Festival that will be competing for Academy Awards in their respective categories: Hunger War by Skye Fitzgerald (Short Doc/USA); Demic's Panic by Bill Plympton (Animation/USA), and Archibald’s Syndrome by Daniel Perez (short narrative/France). These films reflect the quality of storytelling that AIFF is proud to screen. Each year we look forward to receiving interesting artistic submissions and each year we are in awe of your inspiration and talent to create amazing films! 

Submission procedure

Mission statement:  To foster appreciation for different cultures by exploring the lives of people around the globe through independent film — to nurture the next generation of filmmakers.
