Category Rules

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:
• Previously submitted documentaries will not be accepted, unless the film has undergone significant content changes (60% or more) and meets all other submission requirements.
• Feature documentaries are forty one (41) minutes or longer. Shorts are forty (40) minutes or less, including all credits.
• If the documentary is in a language other than English, it must be subtitled or dubbed in English.
• Promotional, instructional, industrial films, or raw documentation of performances are not eligible.
• While we permit submissions of rough cut, fine cut, or other work-in-progress versions for consideration, please note that in order to be selected for DOC NYC's lineup, a completed version of the film must be ready by our print traffic deadline, October 15, 2018. DOC NYC will NOT screen a work-in-progress publicly.
• Generally, DOC NYC preferences newer films for inclusion. For the 2018 edition, we are ideally seeking films which are making their public premiere within calendar year 2018, or, barring that, had their world premiere no earlier than September 2017.
• To be eligible for inclusion, Features must not have screened publicly in NYC prior to the Festival, nor have been broadcast on US television or online before the festival, nor commercially released on DVD/Blu-ray, VOD, or for download to the public.
• For non-competition sections, exceptions may occasionally be made to consider films which have already screened in NYC - contact submissions@docnyc.net to inquire before submitting.

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES:
• DOC NYC strongly prefers Vimeo links over Withoutabox's Secure Video Screeners video uploads.
• If you change your Vimeo link, or the password connected to it, make sure to email the updated information to submissions@docnyc.net.
• Please Note: We do not accept DVD as a submission format. All entries must be submitted by link.
• Filmmakers may submit more than one documentary, but each documentary must be accompanied by its own Entry Form and Entry Fee.
• The Entry Fee is non-refundable.
• Submitted materials will not be returned. Please do not send film prints, master tapes, or other originals.
• All entrants will be notified of their status on or around September 21, 2018 via e-mail.
• Please keep us informed of any changes regarding your contact information by emailing submissions@docnyc.net.
• Due to the number of submissions received, DOC NYC unfortunately cannot provide feedback on entries.
• For questions regarding submissions, see Festival Description or email submissions@docnyc.net.
