Category Rules

All films chosen as Official Selections receive 2 VIP passes to the event, and we will help with finding accommodations. Please pencil in 9-11 November 2017 for a visit to Lancaster, Pennsylvania? If our sponsorship campaign goals are met, we will offer some small stipends for accommodations.

While we do not require a Press Kit, we ask that you, please upload 3 spectacular stills from your piece, not of you shooting the film but the most eye-catching stills of your piece. We will need promo pics for posters and the program guide. We hope you might have these available with your submission so we don't have to ask you later.
