Category Rules

AFI FEST 2018 presented by Audi - Submission Requirements

* 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 this application. While we can accept links from most any standard file transfer service, we prefer Dropbox or WeTransfer.

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

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

* 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 version will be available by October 19, 2018. However, please be aware that our programming department may not be able to re-screen your project if you send a final version after submitting a rough cut. To avoid confusion throughout the screening review process, we would prefer that you only send us ONE version of your project and preferably the final version.

* Previously submitted projects will not be accepted, unless the project has undergone significant content changes (60% or more) and meets all other submission requirements. Permission to re-apply is required. Please email programming@AFI.com.

* The entry fee is non-refundable.

* We offer a limited amount of fee waivers each year for AFI Conservatory fellows and AFI FEST alumns. If you are a member of one of these groups, you can write to programming@AFI.com to request a fee waiver before the final deadline. AFI Conservatory fellows, please include your full name, year of graduation and discipline. AFI FEST alumns, please include your previous film title, your roll on the film and year that it was screened at AFI FEST. We are unable to offer any other entry fee waivers at this time.
