Rule #1
The spirit of the Atlanta Award-Qualifying Film Festival is one of friendship and universal cooperation. Its aim is to reveal and focus attention on works of quality in order to contribute to the evolution of motion picture arts and encourage the development of the film industry throughout the world.

Rule #2
The Board of Directors chooses and invites the films which will be presented in Competition. Each film invited to be part of the Official Selection by the Board of Directors will receive a Certificate of Participation.

Rule #3
Once a film has been selected it cannot be withdrawn from the Festival programme during the event.

Rule #4
All films must be presented in their original language, with English subtitles. By "original language" is meant the language in which a film is or will be exhibited in its country of origin. It is for the Board of Directors to decide whether or not a film that does not exactly meet this criterion may participate in the Festival.

Rule #5
Films chosen to be part of the Official Selection agree to use the "Official Selection" logotype of the Atlanta International Film Festival on all publicity. To help promote the projects of filmmakers, selected and awarded films can be shown on the portals of the film festival and its business partners - other film festivals on its recommendation.
