Category Rules


* Projects must be viewable via one of our accepted platforms (360° video, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Samsung Gear VR). We request that you provide a link to a 360° video file (.mp4), app download package (.apk), or other installation package via the special questions page of the application.

* Submitters must provide a 2D version or documentation of the project via Withoutabox’s Secure Online Screener system.

* There is no premiere requirement for Interactive & Virtual Reality Projects. Projects may be available for free or for purchase, via any distribution platform, or exhibited at other festivals/trade shows.

* We must receive the download link to your 360° video file (.mp4), application package (.apk), or other installation package by midnight PST on August 31, 2017. While we can accept links from most any standard file transfer service, we prefer Dropbox or WeTransfer.

* More than one entry may be submitted. Each entry must be accompanied by an official entry form and entry fee.

* Rough cuts and works-in-progress are eligible for entry if the final cut will be available by October 20, 2017. However, please be aware that our programming department may not be able to re-screen your project if you send a final cut after submitting a rough cut. To avoid confusion throughout the review process, we would prefer that you only send us ONE version of your project and preferably the final version.

* The entry fee is non-refundable.

* All projects will be notified of their status by October 13, 2017 via email. Please keep us informed of any changes regarding your contact information by emailing programming@AFI.com.

* Due to the number of submissions, AFI FEST cannot provide feedback on any entries.

* All entries selected for the Festival grant AFI FEST the rights to use footage, stills and/or titles and information from the film for promotional purposes.

* All projects submitted must be free from any legal disputes and the creator must have cleared all rights for music and exhibition.

* AFI FEST reserves the right to change any information contained in this document (including Festival dates, venues, events, awards and eligibility requirements) without further notice.
