Category Rules

Submit Format: Standard Definition NTSC DVDs, two copies (no PAL).

Exhibition Format: NTSC Blu-ray or Standard Definition NTSC DVD. (No PAL.)
(Note, exhibition copies should state ‘For Exhibition’ on the disc, be ‘self-play’, and submitted as soon as possible after selection. Blu-ray discs will be returned if appropriate self-addressed, pre-paid mailing envelope is included.)

Aspect Ratio: All screenings are projected at 16:9 Widescreen. For best viewing, letterbox your frame within this window ratio.

Audio Levels: We use the industry digital standard of -12db as the nominal target level. (Films that exhibit non-professional audio quality and/or levels will not be accepted.)

Total Run Time (TRT): Must include credits. We screen credits!

Self-Play Disc: Do not include Menus in your Exhibition Copies.

Production Date Limits: None… but older works need to be quite good to compete against newer entries. Requirements remain the same as stated above.

Non-English language films must have English subtitles or be dubbed in English.
