ENTRY FEES: Are non-refundable once submitted.

AFTER SUBMISSION ACCEPTANCE: In order for your title to be included in the Festival, you must agree to provide the following materials to FFTH within 20 days of acceptance:

1. For film, at least one screen shot of the title, and box art if available. Image must be in jpg format, 300 dpi,
2. If available, a trailer of the program in digital format.
3. Exhibition format(s) of your project, delivered no later than 21 days after acceptance.
4. Copies of press releases and additional press materials.
5. In addition to the Exhibition Copy of your film (DVD, BLU-RAY, dependent on the venue we place you in and its available formats), we also require 2 DVD DISK copies for the industry jury of the competition. These DVDs will NOT be returned.

FFTH prefers BLU-RAY for festival screenings of High-Definition Films. Filmmakers screen DVD's & Blu-Ray's at their own risk. If a participant chooses to screen their movie on DVD, they must send an additional copie professionally mastered to insure against skipping. We also require back-up copies for all Blu-Ray discs in the form of 1 Blu-Ray AND 1 DVD. MAKE SURE THEY ARE FULLY TESTED AND FUNCTIONAL ON AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF BRAND NAME PLAYERS BEFORE YOU SEND THEM.

Participants agree that their film or clips from it and all other material related to their project may be used and/or published in the event program.

FFTH holds no responsibility for lost or damaged prints. While the utmost care will be taken with regard to prints, it is solely up to the filmmaker to take full responsibility (i.e.insurance). The cost of delivery and pick-up of all materials is the responsibility of the filmmaker.

By submitting the producer of the film is giving the permission for FFTH to screen the film, if selected by the selection panel, at various time(s) of their choice during FFTH, August 29th - September 1st 2014
