Preferred Festival Program Terms and Conditions

Option 2 requires the participating Festival to use FilmFreeway.com as the exclusive means by which it accepts 100% of all submissions and entries to the Festival.

Due to fees FilmFreeway pays to its third party merchant processing company, Option 2 requires that all festival entry fees must be at least $20 to qualify.

Festival or FilmFreeway may cancel its participation in the Preferred Festival Program at any time by notifying the other party via email. In the event of cancellation, Festival’s entry fee commission will revert back to the standard rate of 8.5%.

Festival agrees to follow and adhere to any listed eligibility requirements, according to its selected Option, in order to qualify and maintain eligibility for the Preferred Festival Program. FilmFreeway reserves the right to terminate a festival’s participation in the Program if Festival fails to adhere to the agreed upon eligibility requirements.
