CATEGORY RULES
Moondance prefers to have your preview film packaged in a standard DVD case, or plastic "jewel-box" case, rather than paper envelopes. We stack them all up on shelves, and need to see the film's title on the spine of the case. We will, of course, accept paper envelopes, if that's all you have. We look forward to reviewing your film!

Please do not send a DVD with a paper label attached to the DVD! Paper labels black the laser, and cause the DVD to stick, freeze & pixilate. You may hand-write the film title, the TRT & your contact info directly on the DVD, or have it printed on when burning it.

Moondance prefers DVD screener submissions over WAB's poor quality Secure Online Screeners, but will accept online submissions as necessary. Please consider sending a DVD even when submitting your film online!

MUSIC COMPOSERS SUBMITTING VIA WAB: HOW-TO:

Due to the limited options (film or script) offered by WAB when you begin the process of submitting your entry, just submit your music entry as a script or film to Moondance, and add a note about it, if you want. The entry fee is the same for music, films and scripts, anyway. Also, if you get a window from WAB saying your submission doesn't match Moondance categories, just ignore it and move on to the next page.
