You may submit your movie for consideration in multiple categories. To do this, simply check the box of each category you wish to submit to (you will see the fee due next to each individual category). We do not accept any films completed earlier than 2019.
All submissions will be judged for the categories they are submitted for. However, our jury may decide that your film should be considered for alternative categories which it was not submitted for originally. This assures extra consideration and can substantially increase your film's chances to qualify for an award.
You must own the rights to your film, including the music and have permission of release from everyone appearing in your film.
Non-English language films will be accepted but must have English subtitles.
