This festival runs in two phases. We will accept all entries that meet the festival criteria. All entries will be screened at coffee houses, yoga studios and other non-traditional venues between Taos, New Mexico, through Albuquerque, New Mexico, and down to Las Cruces, New Mexico - the Valley of Fires. The three best-liked films in each category as ranked by audiences will be judged by a panel of film experts. The films ranked first in each category will be screened at a historic theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The date of the theater screening is being left flexible at this time till we have received all entries and screened them at coffee houses, yoga studios, etc.

Each film will be given a laurel of acceptance; first place winners will get a laurel of recognition. A Grand Prize winner will get a cash award of $150. (Note: This award is contingent on the recommendations of the experts panel - that is, the panel has the leeway to select a film for a Grand Prize award or not.)

If you do not have a Youtube channel, we will post your media on our channel. This will ensure that all submissions meet the criteria of being able to be viewed in a public place.
