Category Rules

Documentary Shorts must be under 45 minutes.

• Films and videos should be of interest to the queer and people of color communities. We are seeking narrative, documentary, experimental and animated films and videos (both features and shorts) in
35mm, 16mm, Digibeta, DCP or HD-Cam. (Upon acceptance, Outfest will provide projection options for the venue in which the film will screen. IF THE FILMMAKER CANNOT PROVIDE THE CORRECT PROJECTION FORMAT OR QT FILE, THE FILM WILL NOT BE SCREENED.)

*Outfest now accepts online screeners to be uploaded to Withoutabox for preview screening if you choose to do so.

• Rough cuts and works-in-progress are eligible for submission if an exhibition print or tape will be available by February 1, 2017.
Please label the tape or DVD “Rough Cut” and specify what is missing (i.e. temp sound, needs color correction, etc).

• By submitting your work to Outfest, you grant to Outfest a non-exclusive license to use an excerpt of your submission DVD of up to two minutes in length, for promotional purposes only.

• Still photos from your work are requested with your submission and are required for all films and videos selected for the festival.
Good stills make a difference in film placement and press coverage, particularly for shorts. Even the shortest short can get press
coverage or festival prominence with a captivating still. If you email stills to Outfest they must be in TIFF or JPEG format and 300
dpi (dots per inch).

• You are also encouraged to enclose a synopsis, production credits and press information regarding your film or video.
