Category Rules

OUR BORDERS: The Crossroads Film Festival is so named because of Jackson's location at the "Crossroads" of the South. For the 2016 Festival, we're extending our range... to Birmingham, Memphis, New Orleans, Mobile... If you can drive to Jackson in about 3 hours, you can submit a video!

FREE TICKETS: Each music video **selected for Festival inclusion by our screening committee** will receive tickets to the Music Video Showcase -- one ticket for the director and one ticket for each member of the band. Crossroads will also offer bands a discount on All-Access VIP passes to attend the full Festival (including workshops, films, after-parties...).

STUFF TO BUY: There will be memorabilia for purchase including our awesome poster and T-shirts!

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
Single-song music videos for musicians/bands within the three-hour driving radius of Jackson. Filmmaker must have legal rights to use the song.

DEADLINE & FEES: All music videos must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on January 15, 2016. FREE to enter.

Please submit a separate entry form for each video.
