Category Rules

Eligible works must have been completed after January 1, 2013.
Exhibiting films publicly in the Greater Birmingham Metropolitan Area
prior to the 2015 festival dates will prevent your film from competing
in the 2015 SHOUT Film Festival and may prevent the film from being
accepted to the Festival. This includes projects available on the web.
Work accepted to screen at the Festival will be categorized in
competitive and non-competitive categories at the sole discretion of
SHOUT.

If your submission will be available through a video on demand (VOD) or pay-per-view (PPV) service of any kind, on or before September 1, 2015 please indicate such when entering. The availability of your film prior to September 1, 2015 through such a service will make the film ineligible for competition and may, or may not, prevent the film from being
programmed. Availability through such a service will be considered
during the programming process and may impact programming decisions.
However, decisions regarding programming films that have been screened
elsewhere and/or are available through a video on demand service,
pay-per-view service and/or any other service, venue, channel, theater
or otherwise are solely up to the SHOUT/Sidewalk Film Festival staff.
