While we would love to be able to grant waivers for all submissions and completely empathize with the often exorbitant costs of filmmaking and promoting your film on the festival circuit, we are a non-profit institution and have to maintain our financial stability as well. Thus, we are committed to keeping submission costs low and affordable to all filmmakers.
