The Oakland Underground Film Festival is offering a very special promotion for readers of the Underground Film Journal who want to submit a film to their 4th annual festival, which will run on Sept. 27-30 in California’s Bay Area.

It is now completely free to submit to OakUFF for all filmmakers who mention the Underground Film Journal with their submission materials. That’s right, your entry fee will be waived as long as you say you’ve read about this offer on the Underground Film Journal. Their final deadline for submissions is June 1.

OakUFF typically screens a wide variety of work. Last year, they screened the semi-autobiographical drama Yelling to the Sky by Victoria Mahoney, the music documentary/narrative fusion of Marimbas From Hell by Julio Hernández Cordón, and the campy Devious, Inc. by xuxE, among other films. You can check out last year’s full lineup here.

The festival also appears to be expanding a little this year by adding an extra night of programming.

So, if you’re interested in submitting, please make sure you mention the Underground Film Journal to take advantage of the special free submission offer.

The fest will run on June 21-24. To submit, please visit the Onion City website.
