CATEGORY RULES
ENGLISH

iF3 has invited specific production companies to submit their films to the professional category. Additional production companies are welcome to submit their films to compete in this segment, however they will be judged on the same level as professionally made films. While we do not have specific requirements regarding what qualifies as a professional production company, the following guidelines may help classify a professional crew:

-Sponsored Athletes
-Significant external funding
-Professional cinematographers
-Professional editing
-The revenue and sponsorship income are sufficient to financially support the parties involved
-The production company is run as a business

If you believe that you can compete on a professional level then you are free to submit your entry, however, if you do not feel that you can compete on a professional level then there is also an amateur category to enter.

***The amateur and professional categories are mutually exclusive meaning that you may only submit your entry to one of the two. If you do not follow the rules and submit the same entry to both professional and amateur categories then iF3 reserves the right to remove your submission from consideration without a refund of entry fees. That being said, a single production company may submit films to the Web & New Media category as well as an entry to the professional OR amateur category.***

FRANÇAIS

L’iF3 a invité des compagnies de productions spécifiques à soumettre leurs films dans la catégorie “professionnel”. D’autres productions sont bien sûr les bienvenues à soumettre leur films pour être en compétition dans cette catégorie. Notez qu’ils seront jugés au même niveau que les films produits par des professionnels. Bien que nous n’ayons pas de critères spécifiques concernant les productions considérées comme “professionnelles”, les instructions suivantes devraient vous aider:
- Athlètes sponsorisés
- Financement externe significatif
- Cinéastes professionnels
- Montage professionnel
- Les revenues sont suffisants pour supporter financièrement les parties impliquées.
- La compagnie de production est considérée comme une entreprise

Si vous pensez être admissible en tant que professionnel, soumettez votre film. Dans le cas contraire, n’hésitez pas à le soumettre dans la catégorie amateur.

*** Les catégories “professionnel” et “amateur” sont mutuellement exclusives. Cela signifie que vous ne pouvez être en compétition que dans l’une ou l’autre catégorie. Si vous ne suivez pas les règles, l’iF3 se réserve le droit de supprimer votre candidature sans remboursement. En revanche, une compagnie de production unique peut soumettre des films dans la catégorie “Web & Nouveau Média” tout en soumettant des films dans la catégorie “professionnel” OU “amateur”. ***
