Film Festival seeks submissions from Alaskans

The Never Sets Film Festival is once again seeking short films and short screenplays created by Alaskans for an upcoming competition. The deadline for this year’s festival, “Stories from the North,” is June 15.


Last year, the festival received submissions from all around Alaska and presented the films over the course of several days at events in Anchorage, Juneau, Barrow and Bethel. Organizers are hoping for a bigger and better festival this year that will help connect aspiring and established filmmakers within Alaska to each other and to audiences in communities of all sizes. The project is organized in partnership with The Institute of The North in Anchorage.

The festival is currently accepting submissions of short films (49 minutes or fewer) and screenplays (49 pages or fewer). Films accepted by the festival will be screened for the public in Anchorage on Aug. 18 as part of The Institute of the North’s Week of the Arctic. Screening events in other communities will be held around the same time, with dates and venues TBD.

Submissions can be mailed to:
