Please do not send works-in-progress.

Youth Films must be 30 minutes or less, contain educational,
inspirational, or positive messages and made by youth ages
19 yrs or younger at time of submission that are currently in
high school or below. Applicants must send proof of age with
their submission. A valid high school ID or state ID card with

If the submitter is younger than High School age, please
include a brief note from your parent which includes your
birth date and acknowledges their permission for your entry. International & US accepted.

Youth films in a language other than English must be subtitled in
English for Festival presentation. Projects that are not in English
or do not include English subtitles will not be considered for
inclusion in the festival.

Regardless of original format, all films must be submitted for pre-
screening & exhibition on NTSC DVD (region 1).

Multiple Entries – You may submit more than one project, but each one must be on a separate preview DVD and must be accompanied by its own completed submission and entry fee.

International entries – International shipments must be accompanied by a commercial invoice (containing the film title, run time, format (color or b&w), value of shipment and sender's name and address). Screeners and shipping documents should be marked: “No commercial value, for cultural purposes only”. All entries from outside the US should be sent Air Mail Registered or by a parcel or express service. We cannot accept entries shipped via airfreight if customs and delivery fees have not been paid. The PROGRESS Arts Group Inc. and BCIFF will not pay customs duties or fees.

All submitted material must be labeled with the film title, running time and contact information (including name, address, email address and phone number) and WAB tracking number. The PROGRESS Arts Group Inc. and BCIFF are not responsible for and will not return submissions that are not properly labeled.

All submissions must be shipped prepaid by sender, insured and packed in proper containers. The PROGRESS Arts Group Inc. and BCIFF will not assume any liability for damage to submission materials incurred during shipping due to improper or inadequate packaging.

There is "NO ENTRY FEE" for this category.

Category winners and awards will be announced at the Bayou City Inspirational Film Festival Awards Event. If your film is selected for screening, please make every effort to attend the film festival.
