PRIZES & AWARDS
This category is a competition.


Audience Favorite-Children's Feature
Prior to each feature screening, Festival goers receive voting ballots and are asked to rate the film on a 1 to 5 scale. The film with the highest average score receives the acknowledgment.


CATEGORY RULES
Mill Valley Film Festival's Official Premieres Selection is open to world, North American and US premieres of feature films from around the world. It is a focal point of the Festival, and is seen as an important launching pad for introducing films to the American market.

Feature-length entries (50 minutes and over) receiving theatrical release, TV broadcast, screening at other California Festivals and venues or are available for purchase on DVD or online (e.g. iTunes, video on demand, etc.) prior to MVFF's dates will not be considered. Feature-length entries receiving a theatrical or festival screening in the San Francisco Bay Area prior to or within a month following MVFF dates will not be considered for the Festival. Exceptions will be made under special circumstances. Please contact our office if you agree to any other screenings directly before or after MVFF, other than those listed on your application.

Film/video makers are responsible for providing a good quality print or tape for their screening.

Previously submitted work is not eligible for re-submission.
