By submitting your film to our festival you agree that your piece of work (full film or trailer) can be uploaded/embed on our website. The filmmaker/institution that is submitting the film must own the rights to do so and is responsible for the content they are providing.

Any violations of that agreement will result in immediate disqualification from the festival.
How does it work?
After the submission is complete and the film is accepted, we will upload/embed your film/trailer on our Screening Room webpage. Winning films will be highlighted. Category award winning films are screened at the live festival event along with trailers of officially selected films.
Submissions close 1 month before the festival screening date(s) and all officially selected films will be announced on our website and social media pages. All of those selected will be notified through filmfreeway.
Winners, nominees and unsuccessful films can be deleted from the website after the festival ends as long as the submitter decides to do so.
