#Upon submitting a film for consideration to the SALA Arthur screening program the submitter acknowledges and agrees to the following:

1. The submitter holds relevant copyrights for the submitted film and agrees to screen the film at the Arthur screening program should it be selected for the program.

2. The submitter understands that submitting a film does not guarantee entry into the festival program. We will attempt to play all films, one film per band, and artist.

3. The submitter agrees that if the film is selected for the Arthur screening program they will be able to provide a screening or downloadable copy on MP4, VLC, or Quicktime mov.

4. Films ONLY made in South Australia are accepted for these programs.

5. Arthur screening program only accepts submissions electronically, utilizing online screeners. This allows your film to be seen by the whole programming team and thus increases its chances of being selected.

    This was the friendliest film festival I have ever attended. It featured a fascinating blend of South Australian short films that would otherwise disappear under the local radar that tends to be tuned to either student or more commercial productions. It was its first year - let’s hope the organisers can do it again next year!
