CATEGORY RULES
FESTIVAL ENTRY PROCEDURE
1) Applicants should submit a DVD (PAL) viewing copy of their work, which should be clearly marked with film title, contact name, email and mobile number or via media files or on-line through WAB.

2) We accept short films made in all formats of digital and video. Films must be no longer than 20 minutes (unless agreed in advance with the Festival Director) and must have been completed within the last 20 months. We are able to screen the films ONLY on 35mm, 16mm, Mini DV, DVD, Beta, Digi Beta, SP and PAL. We regret that we are unable to pay for any transfers, such as Digi Beta to Beta SP, or Beta NTSC to PAL (so correct formats must be sent).

3) Films submitted to previous Kino Film Festivals will not be accepted (unless requested by the Festival Director).

4) Delivery costs of the viewing copy must be borne and arranged by the applicant. Viewing copies will not be returned as they will remain in the Kino archive for future reference.

5) Delivery costs of the screening print must be borne by the applicant or forwarding festival. Kino will cover return costs of the screening print but not any additional charges which may be incurred at the consignee’s end.

6) All packages from outside the European Union must bear the declaration: “for temporary importation only and for cultural use at a film festival - of no commercial value”. Documentation/proforma invoices for films from outside the EU must not state a value that exceeds £10 as this often attracts importation taxes. Please contact Kinofilm if you need an example form, or have any questions - it is important that the package is sent with the correct paperwork. Any film attracting freight charges/ importation taxes our end will not be accepted, and will be returned at the sender’s own cost or may be retained by UK customs, where its retrieval will be the sender’s responsibility.

7) Screening prints must be sent direct (door to door) to the Kino office address and not Festival venues (by an approved courier), and must not be left for collection at the airport.

8) Kino will accept responsibility for technical damage, fire and destruction, loss or theft, during the period of time that prints are in possession of the Festival only, or if lost when being returned by the festival. Film prints are insured for their print value (or part thereof) only, up to a maximum of £500. Tapes or digital formats are insured for duplication costs, and a replacement only (i.e. not new master copies). Please do not send your only master tape for screening.

9) Viewing copies must be received with all relevant supporting materials by the submission deadline - as dated on the submission form - unless, by prior arrangement a late submission has been agreed with the Festival Director.
