CATEGORY RULES
The Hong Kong International Film Festival Short Film Competition supports the production and re-invention of the short film, a form with its own formal, aesthetic and expressive qualities distinct from those of the feature. It is also a platform for international and local short film directors to exchange visions and ideas.

1. Any type of film (fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, music videos; except commercials) not exceeding a duration of 15 minutes.
2. 35mm or Digital Beta PAL as its screening format.
3. Films must be completed after 1 January 2013.
4. Films that have not been shown publicly in Hong Kong before 2014 nor online prior to the Festival.

SELECTION
1. About 20 films will be selected for the Short Film Competition.
2. Official notification will be sent to selected entrants only.

SUBMISSION

INVITATION
The winning directors will be invited to the Festival to attend the Awards Presentation ceremony, with the travelling expenses covered by the HKIFF.
