Audience Award for Best International Short

Category Rules

Foreign features and shorts are eligible for an Audience Award for Best International Feature or Best International Short.
Film submissions in a foreign language must be subtitled in English.
Selected films must be made available in the following video formats: DCP (preferred format for Features), .MOV or .AVI media files (preferred video format for Shorts), or Blu-ray (NTSC only and Features only).

Films must be submitted for preview on DVD (NTSC is preferred). Preview DVDs will not be returned.
Entries MUST include a film synopsis, a complete cast/credits list, and still. The synopsis should be a well-written, concise description of the basic plot and premise of your film. Maximum synopsis length is 150 words for features, 50 for shorts.

The synopsis and stills may be used in the program guide and will be available to distributors, members of the press and filmmakers.
If submitting more than one film, a separate completed entry form is required for each one.

Please DO NOT affix paper labels to your DVD screener, as they tend to come loose after multiple viewings and can damage the equipment.
