What is Submission Protection?

Submission Protection is an optional service that we offer to submitters. Submission Protection provides for a full refund of submitter’s entry fee if:

  • Filmmaker decides to withdraw submission within 5 days of submitting (provided the submission's Judging Status has not yet been updated by the festival).
  • The Festival is canceled, deactivated, or does not take place.
  • The submission is lost in transit or not received by the festival.

    The fee for Submission protection is 5% of the entry fee. The fee for the Submission Protection service is not refundable.
