How do I submit my music video?

Submissions for Northwest Heat 2016 open on March 1st, 2016. More info can be found on Northwest Heat's Submit page!

If my music video is selected, will I have to buy tickets?

No way! Northwest Heat will provide tickets to every filmmaker who's music video is selected for the Festival.

Is there a limit on how many music videos I can submit?

You may submit as many music videos as you want, however you will have to pay separate submission fees for each one!

Ok, but can I only submit music videos that I've made in the past year?

While we allowed music videos of any age to be submitted previously, we now only accept submissions that have been completed since January 1st, 2014.

Can Northwest Heat pay for me to come to the show?

Unfortunately, Northwest Heat survives on submission fees alone, which covers only about our costs to exist and is staffed completely by volunteers. We wish that we could pay everyone's way, but at this time we apologize for not being able to and sincerely hope as many filmmakers and musicians as possible can make it to the festival!

Who took all the photos on the website?

Northwest Heat thanks our official photographer, Tad Beavers, as well as the local photographers of the Bellingham art community for donating a portion of their work to our festival. Featured Bellingham photographers (alphabetically, by last name) are:
