This is a collaborative artist collective to enhance the human conscience by encouraging the independent global voice of cinema. Along with we want to process a chain of understanding the world cinema scenario and establish sustainability on the motion arts practice. On a par, we strive to create an enormous ground for art to promote independent artists throughout the world cinema carnival initiative.
This is a non-competitive exhibition event only. We believe in collaboration more than the competition.
For preview purposes, we can view your film on online via an external link to websites such as YouTube or Vimeo.
The competition kindly asks that any awards won be mentioned in the projects' promotional materials, although it is not a requirement.
More than one entry may be submitted. Each project must be submitted separately with its own completed entry form.
Titles produced in languages other than English must have legible English subtitles.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS NOTES:
Note that WCC should be considered synonymous with Sphere Festival. The event is a competition with many parts to it; these parts include both frequent pre-screening events, and the annual competition with the tangible awards and selection certificates for which you are competing, and by submitting your work, you are allowing us your project for using in any of use.
*** Please be aware that by submitting to our competition, you are agreeing to allow us to use all/any portion your film/ projects for any part of the film/ projects for any kind of commercial and non-commercial use by us or by our sister concerns, organizations or institutions, as well as for advertising and your promotion across our social media. We retain these rights from the moment your film/ project is submitted to the competition along with you, and in future no longer you are allowed to withdraw your work from us.
Despite our freedom to use your films/ projects for our own screening and advertising, we in no way would like to imply that we have some sort of ownership of your film/ project. Whatever you choose to do with the film outside of the competition is still solely up to you, because we do not own your film inherently through submission.
Any aspect of the competition is subject to change at the discretion of the authority.
