Prizes & Awards

This category is not a competition.
No prizes/awards entered for this category.

Category Rules

1. All non-English speaking films must be presented in their original version with English subtitles.
2. Short Film Entries should not exceed 40 minutes in duration excluding titles provided the titles don’t last for more than 1 extra minute.
3. Films previously entered into and screened at our festival are not eligible for re-entry in subsequent years.
4. All submissions are screened and evaluated by the AIFF Preview and Selection Committees, appointed by the festival steering committee. Their reports are final and confidential. All films received, which meet our criteria, will be screened at the festival.
5. In the event of a film being withdrawn, AIFF will not be liable to refund the fee or return the materials entered.
6. AIFF will attempt to resolve any technical matter related to submission. For more information and queries, contact.
7. One entry fee per category. The same film can be entered into one or more categories, but each category requires an entry fee. If the filmmaker chooses to enter more than one category with the same film, please add an incremental numerical addendum in brackets after the title; i.e. “Film Title” (1), “Film Title” (2) etc as the system requires this differentiation in the case of multiple entries with the same title.
8. Student Filmmakers are encouraged to apply with their student identity in order to prevail occasional discounts.
