The submitted Films & Screenplays will be reviewed by the Illinois International Film Festival committee, comprised of the festival organizers.
The festival committee will then select the films that will be accepted into the festival. Because the Illinois International Film Festival is about the filmmakers and their films, the films will not be accepted based of the structure set up for the festival; rather the accepted films will determine the finale structure (length, schedule & the official award categories) for the festival. All accepted films are nominees & eligible for the festival awards.
Once the accepted films have been determined they will be viewed by the official IIFF judges, which are comprised of film producers, filmmakers, film journalists, and film educators. The judges will then determine the award winners for all the festival categories. The winners will be announced at following the Illinois International Film Festival.
