Call for submissions: North by Northeast (NXNE) Film Festival

The North by Northeast (NXNE) has put out a call for submission for its Film Festival in 2012. Like it's counterpart South by Southwest (SXSW), the festival is both a music festival and an accompanying film festival. The NXNE film festival, however, focuses on music-related films of all genres.

In 2012, NXNE Film will celebrate its 11th year as a unique, boutique gem set alongside the larger NXNE Music festival. Each year, NXNE Film programs over 40 music-themed films from around the world. From indie docs to concert classics, from punk to country to classical, from all over the world – NXNE Film’s programming is never predictable and always fascinating.

Until January 31, 2012, filmmakers can submit music-themed feature, short, or doc to NXNE Film.

The 2012 edition of NXNE takes place from June 11 to 17.

Under the direction of Film Programmer Ambrose Roche, NXNE Film has screened fan favourites like Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, Better Than Something: Jay Reatard, Stones in Exile, Color Me Obsessed, This Movie is Broken, The Last Pogo, Nick Drake: A Skin Too Few, Son of Satan, The Rocker, Mutual Appreciation, Everyone Stares and Blank Generation.

They have also opened up a call for submissions for performing musicians. The Early Bird deadline is December 31, 2011, while the final deadline is January 31, 2012.
