PRESSKIT REQUIREMENTS

PRIZES & AWARDS
This category is not a competition.

No prizes/awards entered for this category.

CATEGORY RULES
VERY IMPORTANT: More than one person has sent a Money Order payable to "SURGE" instead of "Organizing for Communities" even though we have stated that if you choose the option of money order the payment must be made payable to Organizing for Communities. Please make certain that if you submit a money order that payment is made payable to Organizing for Communities. Thank you very much.

The SURGE Film Festival ONLY accepts Films/Videos that are directly, indirectly, literally, or symbolically related to love, activism, protest or civil disobedience.

Important: Please do not waste your time and resources by submitting any film, music videos or scripts which are focused on promoting or campaigning (also known as advertising) for politicians, government agencies or multinational corporations. We will quickly discard such entries.

SURGE organizers want to sincerely thank everyone for your support of the SURGE Film Festival and our increased popularity throughout the world. However, due to the increasing volume of entries received, not all of the wonderful entries chosen as an official selection of SURGE Film Festival can be publicly screened during the festival. Nevertheless, we will continue to work to promote all entries chosen as an official selection of SURGE Film Festival in other methods.

Important:
If you apply through Withoutabox, please mark the DVD with your Withoutabox (WAB) tracking number, the title of your project, running time, your name, contact information and category.

Please place the WAB tracking number on the front of your package in the upper right hand corner beneath your address. This greatly helps us during tracking.

1. Films must have not previously screened in SURGE.

2. Only one title per entry. Filmmakers may submit multiple entries of their own work. You must pay an additional entry fee for EVERY ADDITIONAL ENTRY submitted.

Promotional Usage: Participants agree that all materials related to their film, script, teleplay or stage play may be published in the Festival Program, Web Page and all other promotional materials or property and in all media. Posters and images of the film may be used independently as well as in combination with images from other films to promote the film and SURGE.

Clearances: If selected for screening, all commercial/private property including trademark and/or copyrighted materials shown and recorded in the project must come with authorized permission for screening.

The filmmaker or screenwriter remains entirely liable for any claims that may occur in result of screening the film.

Print Liability: SURGE holds no responsibility for prints or scripts damaged upon arrival and may reject or replace the film in the Festival if this requirement is not met.
