A film selection committee will pre-screen official entries prior to recommendation to the final programming committee. The film festival programming department reserves the right to determine the eligibility and final programming decision of any submission.

For all works where the spoken language is not English, English subtitles or narration are required.

Total running time of 49 minutes or less is considered a DRAMATIC SHORT.

The festival reserves the right to determine in which program section the selected films will screen, and to schedule selected films at the date, time and location of its choice.
