Film & Video Submissions

We carefully review each submission. Please understand that we only share a small number of the videos we receive. We will notify you on the status of your submission. However, at this time we are unable to offer feedback. We encourage you to share work with us prior to release.


If we have ‘liked’ or ‘bookmarked’ a film or video on Vimeo, it means that we have already viewed the work and so there is no need to submit to us using this form. Never do these actions guarantee that the work will be shared on Directors’ Library.


Submission Fee


We have introduced a fee structure to support the ongoing costs Directors’ Library requires to update on a daily basis. This cost has been calculated by runtime – which acknowledges the time it takes our selectors to view plus the additional time required to review internally with notes, manage, and respond to each submission. We review and score longer-form shorts (over 5/10+) in a way that differs from our selection process for short-form (under 5). If you use the site regularly, we hope that you will see this as making a small contribution to the future of this platform. Submissions and our Patreon keep this platform alive.

Submission fees are strictly non-refundable.
Payments are made securely through Stripe.



Release Details


We typically respond within 3 – 5 working days.


If selected, your video will be added to our website archive and be featured on both the homepage and under the relevant category pages. This includes the related and suggested boxes under content throughout the site.


A link to your video on Directors’ Library will be posted across select social handles. These may include Instagram, Twitter & Facebook. Directors Library also publishes a regular newsletter and we may include your video in one of these bulletins. If you provide us with a Vimeo link we will also add your video to our Vimeo channel providing privacy settings allow.


We reserve the right to remove any video from our library or social media accounts at any time.
