Our first annual Iron Bridge Film Festival includes features, shorts, documentaries, music videos, as well as animation. We hope to bring home town feel relaxing feel to your experience here. An award show follows the last screening. An after party will be held the final night of the festival. This will be an opportunity to bump elbows with, and maybe get an autograph or two with, actors, directors, and film makers

Rules & Terms
All submissions must come through FilmFreeway and submitted digitally.
Must provide short synopsis.
Films, TV pilots, episodes, web series, etc... are all welcome.
We don't care how old the film is, but premieres will be given extra priority.
All Films must be complete.
Low, no, and micro budget films are welcome and encouraged.
If your film is selected and you do not provide a media file that meets our specifications (see below) in a timely manner, we reserve the right to select another winner.
All submissions must be in the English language, or come with English subtitles baked-into the file. (We will not decode Closed Captioning)
We understand that film concepts come in many resolutions and sizes. To properly respect that, we ask that if your film is accepted, it comes to us already mastered or re-mastered in a standard 1920x1080, 16:9, MP4 format. Use letterboxing and side-bars as needed, but we want to make sure your film plays as you intend an audience to see it on our projectors. We do not accept DVDs, Blu Ray, or physical media of any kind.
If we do not receive your film in a proper format in time for us to program the festival, we reserve the right not to play your film during the day of the festival.
By submitting a film, promotional material or images, the submitter acknowledges that consent has been obtained from any and all owners, creators, writers, producers and/or other authorized representatives and that permission of any copyrighted or trademarked materials or content (including music and any stock media) has been granted.
If you use any copyrighted or trademark materials or content including music or stock media, you must properly list these in your credits and notify IBFF at the time of submission. We will not accept films with music or images improperly taken from other films, television, recordings, or other media. This includes works of satire and parody.
When submitting to the festival you are agreeing that, if selected and the invitation accepted, you allow us to screen the submitted film during the dates of the festival. IBFF will not pay any screening fees for presentation of the film during the festival. The only exception would be if there is a negotiated agreement preceding the submission of the film to IBFF.
The Iron Bridge Film Festival, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to waive, alter, add, delete or make exceptions to the submissions requirements and eligibility.
