ZIFF is currently accepting applications from African filmmakers (including the African Diaspora) and films from the Dhow Countries’ region- India, Pakistan, South East Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, The Persian Gulf, and the Indian Ocean Islands. Films from Europe, North America and Australia may also be submitted out of competition but all documentary films are viable for competition. All films must have been produced after June 2011. ZIFF however, reserves the right to accept any film with specific interest to the festival. Films reflecting the theme of global cultural interaction, cultural encounters or sociocultural commentary will be given priority and we encourage filmmakers to submit works in any genre. We will accept submissions of works in progress. However, films must be semi-completed no later than April 1st, 2014
