Pitch The SEEfest Review

The SEEfest Review is now accepting pitches on a rolling basis for essays and critiques covering film, literature, art, history, and music. Please review our guidelines before sending us your pitch.

We look forward to hearing from you. Due to the volume of pitches we receive, we may be unable to reply to each pitch, but we will do our best.

Details for Pitching The SEEfest Review

The SEEfest Review welcomes submissions for film and literary reviews that explore the complexity of South East Europe. We are also open to educational articles particularly ones that raise awareness of historically marginalized populations of people who live in South East Europe or are part of the diaspora.

Pitch Guidelines

The SEEfest Review now accepts pitches on a rolling basis for essays and criticism on film, literature, art, history, and music. Please note that pitches are short summaries of who you are, why you want to write this review, and how your angle can offer a unique examination of the topic at hand. Pitches are not full submissions.

Please review our published reviews for an idea of what we are looking for. In general, we prefer film, literature, and play reviews rather than, say, historical articles or general trends in the film industry. That said, we occasionally accept the latter as well, especially if they resonate with our mission. We ask that your final article be between 500 and 1,500 words.

To pitch us, please complete this form titled “Pitch The SEEfest Review.” Please wait for a response from our team before you pitch us again. Thank you.

We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your piece gets selected for another publication as soon as you know. That way we don’t fall in love with a pitch that is no longer available for us to pursue.
You should hear from us within six weeks.Should you be rejected, please know that you can still continue to submit future pitches to us. If your pitch was accepted, we will be in touch with you to offer editorial guidance as you complete your article.
