Virtually, at the end of the streaming, a GOOGLE FORM will be available for viewers to vote. On the physical location, the HOST will have to explain and provide the GOOGLE FORM link to the physical viewers. All voting systems will be done ONLINE using THE SAME GOOGLE FORM link.
On the GOOGLE FORM, the viewer will agree to have viewed the entire competitive teasers of the festival, to be honestly choosing their favorite teaser, to be voting only once. A valid email and name will be requested for security reasons. Viewers will remain anonymous. Viewers will have an open window to vote up to the last day of the festival. Voting is not mandatory but highly recommended. Any attempt to try to hack the voting system (robotic voting, etc.) will complicate the competitor's chance in participating.
The teaser poster will have a similar voting system. For this year, it will not be part of the crowdfunding.
The audience will participate in the screenings of the films. By doing this it allows them to vote which teaser they would be interested in watching as a finished feature film.
Special invites from the art industry worldwide will be considered and announced to participate as a member(s) of the jury.
• Submission of a Teaser allows the MANWTFFF to exhibit any participant’s material in different distribution platforms in order to promote MANWTFFF, e.g. posters, etc. The images can be used in whole, or in part, during, before or after the festival screening.
• The person completing the application form is responsible for the exhibition of the material and its content.
• Participation in the Festival gives participants the freedom to include the festival logo as part of their teasers during the screening.
The registration of a film means the acceptance and complement of all the terms and conditions established.
