Hi! Extremely new to filmmaking. Just wanted to know if I could/if it's a good idea to submit to film festivals around the nation that I do not plan on attending.

Thanks for answering!

It is absolutely fine~ I'm sure it's nice to attend, but you do not have to be present unless otherwise specified. Sometimes they hand out physical awards/etc that they prefer people to accept in person.
