We accept works in film or video of any genre that is animated. The length should be between 1 and 45 minutes. Submissions preferred as a secure online screener or a Vimeo/YouTube link. If the links are private be sure to send us the password. We also accept a NTSC/DVD for submissions. Please label all work clearly with your name, contact information, submission number and running time. Be sure we can connect your electronic submission with your mailed media.

If you want include a pre-stamped, addressed, postcard we will put it in the mail when we receive your submission. If you put enough postage on it and self-address it correctly you should receive it. This only shows we received your submission.

If selected, we will VASTLY prefer a .mov file sent electronically. We will accept .mov files on disk also. We would prefer to author all DVDs or preparing hard drives for the festival. We will accept DVDs NTSC regions 0 and 1 but if you send us a DVD you are guaranteeing it works. If it does not work we will try our best to make it work but if it doesn't we are not refunding your submission fee. If our equipment plays all the other films but yours does not work it is the disk not the equipment. The film must be made available to the festival by September 20, 2014. Exact technical requirements will be e-mailed to all accepted film-makers with their acceptance notifications.

Selected directors will also be asked for press kits including still photos, a brief description, a YouTube or Vimeo based trailer/teaser, plus any other supporting materials with their exhibit copy. E-mail is best for the press kit. We will print what we need.

Final programming decisions will be made by the screening committee in
August. All entrants will be notified by email through WithOutABox of the status of their submission by August 15, 2014. If you add us to your address box you should see our email, info@NYCIndieFF.com. But, please be sure to check your spam mails, and log into your WithOutABox account during the month of August.
