By submitting a film, the submitter (“Filmmaker”) hereby irrevocably offers to One Race Human Race Film Festival (“Festival”) the right to screen the submitted project herewith (“Film”) at the 2022 One Race Human Race Film Festival at times to be determined by the Festival in its sole discretion. Filmmaker understands and agrees that once Festival accepts Filmmaker’s offer by selecting the Film for the Festival, Filmmaker shall have no right to remove the Film from the Festival, but Filmmaker shall not be barred from submitting or screening the Film at any other film festival or event outside a 25 mile radius of the One Race Human Race Film Festival. If Festival selects the Film for the Festival, Festival shall have the irrevocable right, but not the obligation, to screen the film at the 2022 One Race Human Race Film Festival, in Festival’s sole discretion.
Scripts accepted as Official Selections are listed in the Festival's official Program Guide by Title, Name of Writer and Synopsis and listings are worded in a manner acceptable to the Festival. If a Film is accepted by the Festival, a copy of the film must be provided to the Festival on or prior to the stated deadline, which will be a minimum of four (4) weeks from the date of notification. Additionally, Filmmaker must agree to these Rules & Terms via email in order to secure a place in the Festival.

All scripts accepted are considered Official Selections of the One Race Human Race Film Festival in the same manner in which a film is named an Official Selection. Screenwriters are not considered finalists. The distinction means scripts accepted may use the Festival's official laurel for marketing purposes and screenwriters are equal to filmmakers in terms of Festival passes and access to all Festival events. Official Selections, including scripts, are not guaranteed a nomination or mention at the awards ceremony gala, but they are guaranteed a listing in the Program Guide, subject to abiding by the Festival's terms and conditions.
Festival reserves the right to revoke selection of the Film for screening if Festival determines, in its sole discretion, it has good cause to do so; one example of good cause as used herein is unprofessional behavior by Filmmaker or Filmmaker’s representative(s). Even if the Festival revokes selection of the Film for cause, the terms of this Agreement shall remain binding and in force.

Overall Rating
  • I wish I could have attended this year's festival, but scheduling issues prevented that. It seems like a wonderful group of people with a heart of diversity and I thank you for the chance to enter. This is usually where people self-promote by including the name of their project, but I won't bore you with the fact that World Peace won Best Screenplay! ;) (LOL) Great communication and I enjoyed the nice write up about the screenplay winners! Your graphics are wonderful. Will be entering again next year.

    Many thanks to One Race Human Race Film Festival for your inclusive, welcoming vibe! COVID kept some people away but those in attendance were treated to fun, caring warmth, lovely food and an awesome venue in Kan-Kan Cinema & Brasserie. Also, thanks so much for the Best Doc win for The Bride Price!
