Filmmakers must have the legal right to screen their film and share it with a secure online audience.
By submitting, the filmmaker grants the Festival the right to screen their film for festival participants at premium local venues and, for a short time, allow it to be viewed over a secure online hosting platform (only in regions approved BY each individual filmmaker, and only by registered festival participants).
Note: All submissions must be made online, uploaded as a digital file. We do not accept, or return, dvds or other media.
Submission fees are not refundable.
