Videos can be streamed securely in HD for review and judging purposes. If you need to physically download the project source file for screening at your festival, you’ll need to request permission from the submitter through FilmFreeway.
If the video was uploaded to FilmFreeway, you can request permission simply by clicking 'Request Download' on the Project Details page of that submission. If the submitter approves the download request, you'll be notified by email and the Request Download link will change to a 'Download File' link that will enable you to download the project file in the same place.
If the video is linked via Vimeo or YouTube, you will need to contact the filmmaker and request that they enable downloading within their Vimeo account.
