Category Rules

USAFF accepts feature films in all genres; U.S. and foreign works accepted; any length feature works accepted.

For our purposes, feature films are generally not less than 60 minutes in run time.

Professional and nonprofessional film and video-makers may submit works.

All shooting formats accepted.

The film cannot have premiered in Dallas before the Festival.

Submissions should be made via DVD screener. Filmmakers should include synopsis and any press materials (photos, etc.).

Screeners and press kits will not be returned (unless postage paid return envelope provided).

All screenings will take place in Dallas during the 46th Annual USA Film Festival, April 20-24, 2016.

Filmmakers receive air travel, local lodging and a driver/host during their stay. Filmmakers are honored during the festival with nightly receptions following all screenings and on-stage discussion of their work.
(Air vouchers and hotel are limited quantities; We distribute as films are booked, until the resources are exhausted.)

The USA Film Festival is a NONCOMPETITIVE event. Feature films accepted for inclusion are not prevented from being considered for subsequent competition in the Cannes Film Festival or other competitive events.
