RULES, REGULATIONS & TERMS

The Feature Film Project is for Feature Length Films only

Films must have been completed within the last 2 years

Films that have already screened on Television or been released on Cable are ineligible to enter the Project

Preview formats accepted on DVD (NTSC & PAL) and Blu-Ray (NTSC & PAL)

Deadline For Entries December 15, 2014

The Terms:
We must emphasize the fact that this project is a for-profit business venture, as opposed to a film festival. Although the idea was borne out of the MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival, this project will have a life of its own and we certainly hope it will be a huge success.

Financials: Box Office - The partnering cinemas receive 50% - Filmmakers/Producers (25%) & MANHATTAN SHORT (25%)

Filmmakers/Producers retain 100% of the rights for the digital download, cable TV, VOD and anything outside the box office.

The point of the Feature Film Project is to get a film into cinemas and let the public discover it.
