Please read all guidelines before submitting your film. It is important all guidelines are followed.

We only use the submission platform Film Freeway.

FINAL SCREENING FORMAT

We require a DCP for final screening format. Please make sure your DCP is professionally made. *DCP’s from editing programs don’t always work due to projector requirments. If you don’t have a DCP or are not sure if your DCP will run on our projectors, we work with a DCP Converson Company. Contact us for more info.

All foreign films NOT in English must be subtitled to be accepted into the festival.
