CATEGORY RULES
Films must be submitted on DVD (please test before sending) or as an online screener and be available for screening as a digital file. Please note: we do NOT screen films on Blu-Ray, HD-CAM, or DCP. If you are unable or unwilling to provide us your film as a digital file, DO NOT SUBMIT your film. Again, we WILL NOT screen films on DCP at the festival.

Films must have been completed no earlier than April 1, 2013. Films must be available for screening during the Austin Film Festival, October 23-30, 2014.

Narrative and Documentary films with U.S. distribution (obtained prior to being selected for AFF screening) or films produced, financed or initiated by a major film studio are ineligible for competition, but may be considered for special screening. Selection for screening will be determined no later than one month prior to the festival. Films that have screened on US network or cable television prior to the festival dates are also ineligible for competition.

Filmmakers unsure whether or not to enter their film into the Narrative Feature Category or the Dark Matters Category should select Dark Matters so the film will be watched with that in mind. Austin Film Festival reserves the right to switch the entry category to fit programming needs and interests and films WILL NOT BE penalized for the original submission selection.

-- You MUST include your physical address either in your WAB entry or in your cover letter. Please do not submit a film without giving us your address, which we need for our records.

-- Please include in your cover letter if your film was SHOT IN TEXAS (include locations) or made by TEXAS FILMMAKERS. We have special Out-Of-Competition categories for which your film may be eligible if it is not selected for the competition, and we don't want to miss your film!

Additional Narrative Feature Film Entry Requirements:

Films must be feature-length narratives, 41 minutes or longer.

Films must be Texas Premieres (prefer World/North American/US Premieres).

Open to anyone who wishes to enter.
