CATEGORY RULES
GENERAL RULES
1. WHEN AND WHERE IS THE 2013 MIFF?
Feb 8-10, 2013. The Festival takes place at Phoenix Center for the Arts in Phoenix Arizona.
2. DO YOU ACCEPT rough cuts or works in progress?
We do accept rough cuts or works-in-progress, as long as your film will be completed in time to screen at the festival. However, please submit your work-in-progress only if you feel the heart of the film is present. Please indicate which production elements are missing on your entry (for example, the submitted version has scratch music).
3. WILL YOU CONFIRM RECEIPT OF MY ENTRY?
All entries submitted through Withoutabox will be acknowledged on the WAB site when we receive them.
4. DO YOU GRANT FEE WAIVERS?
Out of fairness to other filmmakers, it is our festival's policy NOT to give fee waivers or reductions. We understand filmmaking is an expensive venture, but these fees are necessary to fund the basics of the screening process.
5. WHAT IF MY FILM HAS BEEN BROADCAST ON TV OR RELEASED IN THE US?
If your film has been or will be broadcast on a US TV channel or released in US theaters before the Festival, it is not eligible for Bloody Hero International Film Festival.
6. WHAT IF MY FILM HAS PLAYED AT OTHER US FESTIVALS?
If your film has been shown in Festivals outside of Arizona, the film is still eligible.
7. HOW RECENTLY DOES MY FILM HAVE TO HAVE BEEN PRODUCED?
We require that your film be completed after Jan 1, 2011.
8. WHAT PRIZES ARE GRANTED TO THE WINNERS?
The winner of each category will receive an engraved statue of th Bloody Hero International Film festival Signature Sculpture. Additional prizes and swag will be revealed the night of the awards ceremony.
9. DOES THE FESTIVAL SHOW FILMS FOR CHILDREN?
There is not a specific category for children's films, but we will include standout films of any kind.
10. HOW DO YOU DISTINGUISH SHORTS FROM FEATURES?
Click here for time requirements pertaining to each individual category.
11. HOW DO I KNOW IF MY FILM IS NTSC OR PAL FORMAT?
Depending on the part of the world that you live in, you either have NTSC or PAL broadcasting formats. Most of North America and many Asian countries (Japan, South Korea) favor the format NTSC, which is short for National Television Standards Committee, while Europe, Australia and some parts of Asia use a competing format called PAL, or Phase Alternating Line. An NTSC formatted DVD won�¢ï¿½ï¿½t play on a PAL player and vice versa.
12. CAN I RE-SUBMIT A PREVIOUSLY REJECTED FILM?
You can only re-submit a film if it has been significantly re-edited from the last submission. Please indicate this if you do choose to re-submit.
13. HOW MANY FILMS CAN I SUBMIT?
There is no limit to the number of films you can submit.Each film should be submitted as a separate entry. Just be sure to fill out a separate entry form and pay an entry fee for each entry.
14. CAN I SPEAK WITH SOMEONE ABOUT FEEDBACK OF MY FILM?
Unfortunately, no. Due to the demands of running a smooth event, we cannot commit to speaking individually with filmmakers about why we did not select their films.
15. WHEN WILL I FIND OUT IF MY FILM HAS BEEN SELECTED?
We will notify everyone by email whether their film has been accepted or rejected by January 10, 2013. Please be sure to keep us updated regarding any changes to your e-mail address.
16. IF MY FILM IS NOT ACCEPTED, WILL YOU RETURN MY SUBMISSION?
We do not return submission materials.
Our aim is to make this process as easy for you as we want it to be for us. So there are multiple submission methods below for you to choose from. Withoutabox, mail in, and screener link submission.

DVDs and other submission materials will not be returned to the submitter Films may also be submitted in Quicktime .h264 or MP4 formats ***
Works-in-progress will be considered, provided they will be completed prior to the Festival. Preview DVD should be labeled with the title, running-time, contact email and phone number..
