Belleville Downtown DocFest film selection committee is now accepting submissions for the upcoming 2024 festival. We accept new submissions from local, national, and international filmmakers, and even better we don’t charge a submission fee!

The film submission deadline is December 1, 2023.

Not a filmmaker, but have a film suggestion?
Do you love to watch documentary films and have seen something recently that you think the DocFest committee should consider bringing to our community? We would love to hear your suggestions of feature or short documentary films that have been produced after October 1, 2021 and haven’t been shown at DocFest before. You can send your suggestions through our online contact form.
