CATEGORY RULES
Hardacre Guidelines & Procedures

Entry Fees: Fees are dependent on a film's length, whether it is a student production, and if certain deadlines are met. Take $5 off any submission fee if you're an Iowa filmmaker. Make check or money order payable to the Hardacre Film Festival. Fees may differ if submitting through Withoutabox.com. Entries must be postmarked by the stated date to qualify for that deadline. There is no limit to the number of entries. Entry fee is nonrefundable. The Festival Director reserves the right to grant fee waivers for special circumstances on a case-by-case basis.

Preview Copies: For jury selection purposes, TWO preview copies of your submitted film must be submitted on DVD (NTSC format only). Please make sure that DVD submissions will play back properly on a standard North American standalone DVD player. If you would like your preview copy returned, please include a self-addressed stamped mailing package. Preview discs may be duplicated by festival staff for judging purposes only. If preview disc is copy-protected, please send two copies with entry form.

Shipping: Films screened on 35mm or provided with a self-addressed stamped mailing package will be returned to sender via USPS by August 30 following the festival. If your film is to be sent to some other location, you must make arrangements IN ADVANCE with the Festival Director. If there is a need for a more immediate return, please arrange with the Festival Director. If screening copy is to be forwarded to other sites or film festivals following the screening, the filmmaker will be responsible for any extra shipping charges. This reimbursement must be received in advance of shipping. While all entries are treated with the utmost care, festival staff is not responsible for loss or damage to prints, discs or tapes.

Deadlines & Formats: Deadline for all entries is June 1, 2013. Films selected for screening will be notified by July 6, 2013, with screening schedule and award winners announced shortly thereafter. Selected entries must have a 35mm print, DVCAM, MiniDV, Blu-Ray or DVD screening copy shipped to the Hardacre office by July 21, 2013. The filmmaker will be responsible for the shipping expense of sending their film to our office. We also request that a press kit accompany the screening copy - it will be used for festival programs, promotion and media outreach. Please note: foreign language films must have English subtitles or an English language audio track available.

Non-Winning Entries: If you are not notified by July 6, 2013 , it is safe to assume your work is not being shown. With the large number of entries we judge every year, it is sometimes very difficult to notify every entrant. To help us contact you, be sure your e-mail address, telephone number or numbers and mailing address is clearly printed on the entry form.

Late Entries: Films may be accepted for late submission contingent on the number of entries already received and overall programming needs. To request a deadline extension, please contact the Festival Director.

Mail the Entry Form, submission fee and DVD preview copy to:

Hardacre Film Festival
c/o Will Valet
609 Cedar St.
Tipton , Iowa 52772

Please note: incomplete submission packages may result in non-consideration.
