Prizes & Awards

This category is a competition.

This prize is shared with other categories.

Category Rules

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

- EIFF only accepts SECURE ONLINE SCREENERS and DVD SCREENERS. Please DO NOT send blu-ray screeners.

- ALL WORLD AND INTERNATIONAL SHORT ANIMATION FILM SUBMISSIONS MUST BE AT LEAST A UK PREMIERE.

- Films that are screening online, or have been screened online, will NOT be considered.

- Promotional films are NOT eligible (e.g. tourism, charitable appeals, etc.).

- All submitted films should be no more than 12 months old by June 2017.

- EIFF regards a Short film as under 30 minutes.

- EIFF will not consider previously submitted work unless it has been considerably re-edited/re-shot. If you are unsure, it probably means it hasn't been changed enough. Please include a cover letter with details of the changes made. If we already viewed your film as a rough cut last year, we usually will not consider it for the following year.

The full EIFF Submissions Rules and Regulations can be found at www.edfilmfest.org.uk/submissions

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Edinburgh International Film Festival seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work.

EIFF is especially interested in films by emerging filmmakers whose work manifests stylistic boldness, strength of form, and the ambition to use the medium in a way that resists cliché.
