Should your film be accepted, it will automatically be entered for the competition.

All submissions will be considered as your screening copy so if the resolution is not sufficient we may not be able to screen your film.

We encourage the use of original soundtracks wherever possible as no copyright material can be used without the express permission of the poet, musician, filmmaker and/or author. We will consider your submission as granting us copyright permission to screen the film for the duration of the project and will retain your film for archive unless expressly instructed otherwise.
