The Homeschool Film Festival is a celebration of the creativity and ingenuity of the Homeschool / Unschool Community. The purpose of this festival is to celebrate and encourage home-based students and educators across the world. We encourage entries of films and screenplays by homeschool students and homeschool graduates, as well as projects that showcase and encourage home education.

Our first annual festival will be a TOTALLY ONLINE EVENT, but we are considering moving to an “in-person” event in the following years.


We’re NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS of films in the following categories:

    • Feature Length Films (over 45 minutes)
      • Narrative
      • Documentary
    • Short Films (under 25 minutes)
      • Narrative
      • Documentary
    • Music Videos

Since this event involves children and youth, all entries must be fully “FAMILY-FRIENDLY” in the opinion of our judges. While we welcome action and adventure, we will not accept entries with graphic violence, profanity, or sexual situations that we deem inappropriate for young viewers.

Visit our page on Film Freeway for more details.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING ENTRIES!
