Category Rules

All Submitted films must be under 15 minutes from title to start of credits.

There is no required MPAA rating or specific content restriction; however, Reel Teal Film Festival encourages and promotes Filmmakers who do not use superfluous violence, nudity, language or other cultural taboos as substitution for real, thought-provoking, content.

All Films that use a language other than English for more than ⅓ of total running time are required to either have A. English subtitles during the parts the foreign language is used, or B. an English dub over the foreign language.

It is not Reel Teal Film Festival’s responsibility to screen for potential copyright infringements, or deny acceptance based on the possibility of such an infringement. If the Filmmaker responsible for the infringement is caught due to the materials exhibition during the Festival, or an infringement is noticed by a festival attendee, no legal recourse can be taken against Reel Teal for whatever reason.
