PRIZES & AWARDS
This category is a competition.


The Award for Best Documentary Feature Film
Feature-length documentaries from around the world are eligible for this award, which was re-introduced at EIFF 2014 after a three-year hiatus. The award carries a cash prize and is judged by an international jury.


CATEGORY RULES

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

- EIFF only accepts DVD SCREENERS. Please DO NOT send blu-ray or online screeners.

- ALL submitted films must be UK PREMIERES. Films that have previously been publicly screened or broadcast in Britain will not be accepted.

- Films that are available publicly online are NOT eligible.

- Promotional films are NOT eligible (e.g. tourism, charitable appeals, etc.).

- All submitted films should be no more than 12 months old by June 2015.

- EIFF regards a Feature film as over 30 minutes.

- EIFF will not consider previously submitted work unless it has been considerably re-edited/re-shot. If you are unsure, it probably means it hasn't been changed enough. Please include a cover letter with details of the changes made. If we already viewed your film as a rough cut last year, we usually will not consider it for the following year.

The full EIFF Submissions Rules and Regulations can be found at www.edfilmfest.org.uk/submissions

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Edinburgh International Film Festival seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work.

EIFF is especially interested in films by emerging filmmakers whose work manifests stylistic boldness, strength of form, and the ambition to use the medium in a way that resists cliché.
