CATEGORY RULES
Entries must be under 30 minutes TRT.

We will consider all films except those with graphic violence, excessive foul language, and graphically explicit sexual encounters.

We prefer screening copies using Withoutabox's Secure Online system. We may ask that a DVD copy be mailed for internal use.

If sending a DVD, submit playable DVD in NTSC Region 0 or 1.

Student submissions must include copies of the student ID. If the ID is not included, the film will not qualify for the Best Student Film Award, and we will request an additional fee to qualify for the non-student category.

A photocopy of the Student ID can be mailed to our address, or a scan can be emailed to us at films@westchesterfilmfestival.com. ALWAYS include the name of your film and WAB entry number on all correspondence.
