Our focus is on independent films that are self-produced and financed. If you are having any kind of premiere with us, please let us know.
 
When submitting your project, make sure you apply to the right category. This is judged by category length. If placed in the wrong category it will be rejected.
 
There are NO restrictions on when you completed your film or where it has previously screened. Anyone may enter this competition. If your film is not in English, please EMBED SUBTITLES in your screening file.
 
Make sure your film is available to download in the highest quality possible. Preferably via FilmFreeway or Vimeo. If you wish to send your film on a USB stick, it will NOT be returned, unless a Stamp addressed envelop is sent.
