RULES and GUIDELINES - TERMS and CONDITIONS

VISIONFEST 14 encourages and promotes domestic filmmaking: The For Kids By Kids... No Bullies Allowed 2014 initiative is a special sidebar event of VF14. Submitted projects must be created by filmmakers under the age of 18. Adult supervisors are invited to assist in the making of the project, but the final cut of the submitted work must be credited to the participating youth, with the written consent of an adult representative and/or school faculty advisor.

The content of the submitted work must address thematic elements and plot devices addressing the negative effects that bullying can have on its victim(s). Positive and courage-affirming outcomes are encouraged and preferred. The selected projects will be showcased in a special, red carpet, sidebar show during Visionfest 14, at Tribeca Cinemas, in New York City, before a public audience of special community guests, industry reps, and other filmmaking peers.

Submitted projects are NOT eligible if they have screened in more than (1) other New York based film festival less than 60 days prior to the prospective VISIONFEST 14 screening. New York Premiere status is preferred, but not mandatory.

Projects that are available in their complete versions for online public viewing prior to their prospective VF14 screening may automatically be disqualified and/or removed from awards consideration and possibly from the film festival line-up altogether. Exceptions may be made for those projects that are participating in online film festivals or other legitimate online competitions. Such exceptions will be made solely by a Domani Vision Executive Branch.

Projects must have a completion date that is no earlier than January 1, 2013.

Submitted 'previews' must be in MiniDV or DVD formats (NTSC only) or in the following Digital Media Files: .mov, .avi, .mp4 and will not be returned, unless a S.A.S.E. (including the proper shipping and handling costs) is provided by the filmmaker(s).

All 'previews' for projects that qualify for festival exhibition shall remain in possession of festival committee for archival reference and/or 'festival trailer' production.

Please make company check or money order payable to:

DOMANI VISION FILM SOCIETY
PMB 155
