FILMS MUST HAVE A FASHION: THEME, ELEMENTS, OR SPONSORSHIP

The deadline for submissions is May 29, 2020

Please keep the following in mind for your film(s):

Film(s) must have a fashion: theme, major element(s), or sponsorship.

Films between 1 and 15 minutes are eligible for IFFA Awards.

Films 20 minutes to feature length are eligible for special screenings and individual awards.

Can be available in either standard or high definition formats.

Must own or have rights to the copyright of material submitted.

Have access to releases for the talent and music used.

Provide a short bio of the person submitting.

Briefly explain the film’s backstory: why, when, how, who, where.

Because the all LJFFF Official Selection films are automatically considered for the International Fashion Film Awards we need a complete listing of the names of the creative people who worked on the film.

If accepted, submission imagery, including film and clips, you agree will be available for use in the Festival’s promotional activities.

Films are screened as a “one-off” in La Jolla. If your film is determined to be eligible for distribution, you will be notified and have the option of signing a separate distribution agreement at that time.

Although not the determining factor, as an industry event, we give priority to films with attending directors. Therefore please let us know if you are planning on joining us.

Basic process is:
First a film becomes an “Official Selection”.
Second it is Officially Nominated and becomes part of the Final Screening Program at LJFFF.
Third it is voted on by our international jury to win one or more of the coveted LJIFFF Awards

Questions are welcome!

Please include all your contact information.
