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 itself is not refundable.
