CATEGORY RULES
Three DVD screening copies are required for judging purposes. If accepted, the Festival requires 5 additional DVDs for festival play. These copies are not returnable. Your film or trailer will be added to our Festival website for easy download by our venue partners.

Please do not use stick on labels on your DVDs as they often render them unreadable. Either print directly onto the disc or use a sharpie to identify them.

KIDS FIRST! is a year round festival which changes its programming biannually. There are two submission periods per year - June and December.

When you submit your title, you will select the age category you consider most suitable. If our jurors believe it is better suited for a different age category, we will change it.

KIDS FIRST! Best Awards are awarded twice per year. All films that have played during the previous 6 months are considered for an award. For a list of winners, visit www.kidsfirst.org

All entries are final and constitute acceptance of all festival rules. Acceptance to the Festival will allow for screening rights of your film for 24 consecutive months at any of our venue partner locations. Under special circumstances, screenings can be suspended with 60 days notice.
