Category Rules

Student submitters are required to mail, fax or email proof of age and/or their current school registration (ie. school ID).

GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Please note that the screening and selection process will take six 6 months. A total of only 8-16 films will be chosen. The absolute cutoff for submissions will occur 60 days prior to the announcement of selections.

Selected films will be automatically eligible for participation in the annual Hearts and Minds Film Festival Showcase. Further, filmmakers will enter into a NON-EXCLUSIVE agreement to exhibit their selected film at official Hearts and Minds Film sponsored events (a year round extension of festival exhibition, for the purpose of rights) with participating community-based organizations for a period of one year.

For purposes of quality control, Hearts and Minds Film may need to create special DVD masters for use by participating groups only. If DVDs may not be created based on filmmakers pre-existing agreements with distributors or other situations, multiple DVD copies must be provided, as requested.

Following the optional hosted exhibition period (1 year), all inquiries for permission to screen will be forwarded directly to the participating filmmakers.

In submitting a film for consideration in this competition and if selected, the filmmaker (and, or all parties warranted to enter into this agreement) accepts responsibility for the acquisition of any and all rights to sound and image used in their project, for the one-year duration of the partnership agreement.

The submitter also, through submission, is asserting the nonexistence of contractual conflicts between this exhibition program and any other exhibition or distribution contracts the submitter engages in. The submitter also hereby indemnifies Hearts and Minds Film against any claims for distribution royalties resulting from participation in this non-profit competition. By submitting a film for consideration in this competition, the filmmaker agrees to these terms and conditions.

Finally, if selected, the filmmaker will agree to incorporate the Hearts and Minds Film Official Selection brand into future marketing materials (electronic and print) of winning titles.
