Share Article

With nearly 800 international film festivals signed up, FilmFreeway has captured almost 90% of the festival market share of Withoutabox in just its first four months.

Today, a new website that makes it free for filmmakers and screenwriters to discover and submit to film festivals and screenplay contests all around the world, announced that FilmFreeway has been adopted as a submissions platform by 737 international film festivals. In just its first four months since launch, has captured almost 90% of the festival market share of Withoutabox, which as been around, and largely unchanged, for well over a decade.

“FilmFreeway is the fastest growing film festival submissions platform in the world,” said Zachary Jones, Co-Founder and CTO of FilmFreeway. “Every day we hear stories from filmmakers and screenwriters all over the world about how FilmFreeway is making the process of submitting to festivals easier and cheaper than ever before. We built FilmFreeway as a free alternative to Withoutabox. The days of paying a submissions platform a fee to submit to festivals are finally over.”

Another stark contrast between FilmFreeway and Withoutabox is that FilmFreeway allows filmmakers to upload and submit their projects in HD. FilmFreeway also seamlessly integrates with both Vimeo and YouTube, all exclusive features the service offers to filmmakers absolutely free.

“Online screeners play seamlessly, in beautiful, crystal clear HD,” says founder Zachary Jones. “We understand how vitally important it is that the viewing experience for your film reflects the same quality and attention to detail you put into creating it.”

A primary reason FilmFreeway has become so popular with festivals is the significant cost savings it offers. FilmFreeway has no set-up fees and offers commissions as low as just 5%, while Withoutabox charges festivals expensive set-up fees and an 18% commission on entries.

“Actually, we did the math and posted it on our site, and when you factor in all of Withoutabox’s fees and commissions, under a common circumstance they take about 35% of a festival’s revenue. Festivals have spoken loud and clear how they feel about that,” says Jones.

Filmmakers can easily browse all 737 of FilmFreeway’s worldwide film festivals and screenplay contests online at:

“Right now we’re 100% focused on creating the best user experience possible for filmmakers, screenwriters and festivals. If you add up: no cost for filmmakers, cheap for festivals, and a clean, modern user experience, we believe you get the best film festival submissions platform on the planet,” says founder Zachary Jones.
