- The shorts must have been completed within the last 5 years.
- Run time of between 1 and 10 minutes

Submitting is easy: we accept secure online screeners and links on Vimeo and Youtube, but only with a valid FilmFreeway reference.

DO NOT SEND PRESS PACKS, PHOTOS, TESTIMONIALS OR ANYTHING ELSE WITH YOUR SUBMISSION - it is a waste of time and paper. If we accept your film we will ask for the other things we need.
