Category Rules

Ohio based students are eligible to submit for free- please contact us by email for more information.

Entries that have been submitted to previous Athens International Film and Video Festivals are not eligible.

Because of the number of entries received, not all entries are chosen to screen during the Festival. A prescreening committee, comprised of filmmakers, videomakers, and other artists associated with the Athens Center for Film and Video, will watch and evaluate each entry to determine which works are selected for screening during the Festival.

All works that evidence a high regard for artistic innovation, sensitivity to content, and personal involvement with the medium will be welcomed.

* Please note *
We do not accept mailed in screeners (please do not send DVDs, BLURAYs, or flash drives to our office).

We do not accept prescreening materials through email and are unable to download files from sharing services. Submissions are only accepted through our withoutabox or other online accounts.

An entrant must accept our prescreening process; Entries must be original works. Athens International Film + Video Festival (Ohio) is hereby granted the right to utilize an excerpt from any film submitted and accepted for exhibition at the Festival for promotional purposes. The individual or corporation submitting the film hereby warrants that it is authorized to commit the film for screening, and understands and accepts these requirements and regulations. The undersigned shall indemnify and hold harmless Athens International Film + Video Festival from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees, and costs of the court) which may be incurred by reason of any claim involving copyright, trademark, credits, publicity, screening, and loss of or damage to the screening videos entered.
