Everyone will be notified of their film’s status (accepted or not accepted into the Festival) by approximately 1 September 2015.

Competition
BALINALE Audience Choice Award is based on the decision by the film going audience. Trophies are awarded in the following categories: Best Overall Film, Best Feature Film, Best Documentary Film, Best Short Film.

By submitting your film to the Festival, you agree to the final decisions made by the audience. Neither the Festival staff nor the committee is able to provide any comments about your work. Any filmmaker who contacts a juror about the status of a submitted film may be disqualified.

The Submission Process
• Partial or incomplete entries cannot be accepted, so please double-check that you have included everything required in the submission form.
• One person should be designated as the contact for each entry. The Festival handles numerous submissions and can only successfully work with one contact per film. The contact need not be the director or producer, etc., but should be authorized to submit the work, supply information as described on the entry form, and speak on behalf of the production.
• All necessary rights and permissions for festival exhibition of each work submitted is the responsibility of the film production.
• Please fill in all details on the Film Entry Form and submit all the relevant images, bios and Press Kit requirements in the formats required. Failing to do so may cause your film to be rejected during the film submission process and could affect the quality of the promotion of the film you are submitting.

Important Statement to be noted on shipment:
NO COMMERCIAL VALUE - CULTURAL PURPOSES ONLY

The Selection Committee makes the final decisions about which films will be included in the Festival.

Deadline
Complete submissions must be received at the BALINALE International Film Festival office by the deadline. Entries may be hand-delivered to the Festival office by that deadline. If you send your submission by mail or delivery service, please plan ahead to make sure it will arrive by that date. Many places may have delayed postal delivery schedules because of holidays, etc. Be early!
We will send notification to the designated contact person that the submission has been received.

If Your Film is Accepted
All contacts will be notified of their film’s status (accepted or not accepted into the Festival) by approximately 15 August 2015.

ALL Exhibition Copies MUST be received in our office by 1 September 2015.

Once accepted, a film cannot be withdrawn without written approval by the Festival Committee.

A certain number of tickets to your film’s screening(s) will be arranged for the contact person. We of course encourage anyone connected to the production to attend, but the Festival can only set aside a small number of tickets for each filmmaker.

Bali International Film Festival (BALINALE) regrets that it is not able to financially support the travel expenses of filmmakers. Acceptance of your film into the Festival program should not be interpreted as also including travel costs or other expenses.
