WMMIntl 2022 is happening October 5-9, 2022

WMMIntl is a film fest by filmmakers for filmmakers. We wanted to create a festival dedicated to celebrating the DIY filmmaker who knows what it's like to wear all the hats and work with tight budgets. 

Submissions to next year's fest will open on January 10th, 2022 and close May 10th, 2022. Submissions are as little as $15 if you take advantage of our Super Early Bird rate! 

We'll be announcing some awesome filmmaker-only perks and events next year, so stay tuned!

A Festival For Filmmakers By Filmmakers


The We Make Movies International Festival celebrates the Do-It-Yourself filmmaking aesthetic. We just wrapped our hybrid 2021 festival in September and submissions will reopen for 2022 shortly on FilmFreeway.

Held in Hollywood every year, WMMINTL serves to highlight DIY filmmakers across the spectrum of the industry in every genre. From horror to drama, comedy to documentary, experimental and underground to video art, we salute filmmakers who embrace the true indie spirit by making quality art on their own terms. 

Hosted by We Make Movies Inc., a filmmaking company and film collective based on the idea of "Making the film that YOU want to see," this week-long festival provides networking and social events, industry panels, a showcase of shorts, features, and series from around the world, live multi-media performances, and an awards ceremony. By bringing filmmakers of all ilks together, we strive to bolster artists and revitalize the industry that we want to be a part of!
