AFI DOCS Announces 2021 Dates and Call for Submissions

We are excited to announces that submissions are now open for the 19th annual AFI DOCS film festival, which will be held June 22-27, 2021. The AFI Festivals team is committed to achieving the same high standard of programming and engagement that has defined AFI DOCS over the years. We are planning a virtual and/or hybrid in-person festival experience for 2021. Last year’s festival broke new ground in the virtual space, with over 55 films from 11 countries – 61% directed by women – and a lineup that explored important social and political issues in the U.S. and across the globe.  A record-setting audience with attendees from all 50 states joined us safely from home.

Please consider submitting a film or mark your calendar to join fans from across the country as they come together to celebrate the best documentary films from around the world.
