RULES and GUIDELINES - TERMS and CONDITIONS

VISIONFEST 14 encourages and promotes domestic filmmaking: Projects may be shot on international locations but cannot have foreign financing and the production entity/entities must be based in the United States of America. Films that contain dialogue spoken in foreign languages may be submitted, provided that the film's primary language is English (no more than 1/3 of the film's dialogue can be in a foreign language)

Submitted projects are NOT eligible if they have screened in more than (1) other New York based film festival less than 60 days prior to the prospective VISIONFEST 14 screening. New York Premiere status is preferred, but not mandatory.

Projects that are available in their complete versions for online public viewing prior to their prospective VF14 screening may automatically be disqualified and/or removed from awards consideration and possibly from the film festival line-up altogether. Exceptions may be made for those projects that are participating in online film festivals or other legitimate online competitions. Such exceptions will be made solely by a Domani Vision Executive Branch.

Projects must have a completion date that is no earlier than January 1, 2013.

Submitted 'previews' must be in MiniDV or DVD formats (NTSC only) or in the following Digital Media Files: .mov, .avi, .mp4 and will not be returned, unless a S.A.S.E. (including the proper shipping and handling costs) is provided by the filmmaker(s).

All 'previews' for projects that qualify for festival exhibition shall remain in possession of festival committee for archival reference and/or 'festival trailer' production.

Projects must have been completed on budgets that do not exceed $US 2.5 Million

For the INDEPENDENT VISION SHOWCASE, special outstanding achievement awards are bestowed upon qualifying entries. Honorees are chosen by a select group of industry professionals, who are given special advance screenings of the projects that are included in the festival's official screening line-up, to facilitate the casting of their votes. Special Jury Prizes may also be given in special categories determined by the Board of Trustees of the Domani Vision Film Society.

Please make company check or money order payable to:

DOMANI VISION FILM SOCIETY
PMB 155
6402 18th Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11204

SPECIAL DISCOUNTED RATES may be negotiated for feature-length projects with a completion date of January 1, 2014 or later, provided written proof of completion dates is made available to festival programming directors and the project is being submitted with world premiere status.

PLEASE NOTE:

ONLY (1) ONE PROJECT PER SUBMISSION -ADDITIONAL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED SEPARATELY WITH RESPECTIVE ENTRY FEE(S).

PLEASE SUBMIT THE FOLLOWING: Preview (MiniDV/DVD only or appropriate digital files) - company check / money order when not paying by credit card on WAB.

In the event that your project is selected for the Independent Vision Showcase, you may be required to provide additional items, such as photos (digital and/or hard copy) and revised synopses. Also, an additional Permission to Exhibit document will be sent to you via electronic mail, and that will have to be signed by you and returned to our offices prior to your festival screening.

Projects that are selected for the 2014 film festival line-up will also be eligible for consideration in other Domani Vision Film Society events and/or special screenings at no additional cost for submission.
