THIS CATEGORY IS FOR TRADITIONAL MOVIE TRAILERS ONLY

Trailers, if selected, will be played between screenings at the fest.

Only traditional-style trailers entered into this category will be chosen for screening.

Trailers must be for films that have NOT been commercially released theatrically or DVD via major domestic distribution, nor been broadcast on American television in their entirety.


THIS CATEGORY IS FOR TRADITIONAL MOVIE TRAILERS ONLY
For those with narrative short film, or a music video, or experimental film: please submit under any of the Short Film Categories for those types of films - such films if received will NOT be accepted to our festival if submitted into this TRAILER category.
