Category Rules

ENGLISH

We do not explicitly define what constitutes an amateur producer, however, the criteria help classify an amateur:

-Mid to low level athlete sponsorships, if any.

-Minimal external funding, if any.

-Minimal distribution, if any.

-Revenue and sponsorship income is insufficient to financially support the parties involved.

-The film cannot exceed 40 minutes.

***The amateur and professional categories are mutually exclusive meaning that you may only submit your entry to ONE of the two categories.

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

Bien qu’il n’y aie pas critères absolus, les instructions suivantes devraient vous aider à savoir si cette catégorie vous convient:

-Athlétes (éventuellement) sponsorisés de niveau moyen

-Financement externe minime (si financement)

-Distribution minime (si distribution)

-Revenus et sponsoring insuffisants pour supporter financièrement les parties impliquées.

-Le film ne peut pas dépasser 40 minutes

*** Les catégories “professionnel” et “amateur” sont mutuellement exclusives. Cela signifie que vous ne pouvez être en compétition que dans l’une ou l’autre.
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”. ***
