Urbanworld Film Festival
February 24, 2017
To the Radio, Television and Film Department at University of Texas at Austin,
My name is Sandy Cabada and I am the Coordinating Producer of the Urbanworld Film Festival. We are very excited to announce that this year’s 21st Annual Film Festival will take place September 20 – 24, 2017 in New York City at AMC Empire 42nd Street.
We are reaching out to share our festival’s Call for Submission details with your film program participants (students & professors), so that they can submit their film or screenplay for consideration and share with their respective networks. In our quest to celebrate independent film in the most inclusive fashion, we highlight diverse storytellers and stories from around the world.
Please let us know if you’re able to share this information with the relevant populations at University of Texas at Austin, so they have the opportunity to submit their work. Our submission deadlines are below…it would be great if you could announce the OPEN of our Call for Submission over the next week, and then again 1-2 weeks in advance of the deadlines below. We can provide sample posts for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Early Deadline: March 31, 2017
Regular Deadline: April 28, 2017
Late Deadline: May 26, 2017
Please see the attached social media graphic, which we would love for you to share with your content creator networks. We also have online banners available for inclusion in e-newsletters/blogs, if that’s an option.
Please let us know if University of Texas at Austin will share our Call for Submissions announcement with your film school/program participants.
