We accept story-based films, which can be in the form of narrative (fiction), documentary (non fiction), or animation.

By submitting your film, you acknowledge that we promote some of the films by uploading the trailers/teasers/posters/production stills and so you agree to use parts of your film (including trailer/teaser/film poster/stills) for promotional purpose.
However the films will not be available online.

Entry fees are non-refundable.
Multiple entries are allowed for each filmmaker and each entry may be entered in multiple categories.

We do not accept:
1. Amateur videos or movies with poor standards (bad sound, lack of subtitles/captions for non-English films, video resolution less than 720p HD);
2. Films involving politics or promoting political agenda;
3. Extremist or propaganda content from religious or political organizations;
4. Films made before 2012.
