Films submitted without the correct fees or proper submission media may be deemed ineligible at the discretion of the UIFF programming director or executive director. The festival does not cover any of the expenses incurred by the filmmaker.

The Official Selection status doesn’t mean that your film will be screened at the festival. It means that your film has been appreciated by our judges of panel and you can use the festival logo on your poster.

    I am very happy and honored to have taken home the best Micro Short Film Award in June 2021. The certificate and Laurels were emailed to me promptly. I can't speak to the festival itself, but the selections were posted on their Facebook page on the correct day and while they took a bit longer to post June's results, we all must remember that COVID is still a thing across the world and delays are to be expected, so give them time. Results were posted on their Facebook page as well, not their website.
