Our Story

Love is all you need

If there’s one thing we all enjoy, it’s a decent love story. One that fills our hearts with the joy, hope and despair of human attraction. One that inspires us with wonderful characters and a gripping plot. With this in mind, we have created a festival dedicated to finding the next unforgettable love-themed stories.

Our call for entries is now open. Please read our festival terms and conditions before making your submission through Film Freeway. Join us for a festival that is all about community, creativity, diversity and artistic celebration!

Filmmakers are invited to submit shorts or features into Love Story Film Festival. This could be a narrative story, documentary, dance or music video, animation, or an LGBT film based on these themes.
