Required Media

For the Santa Cruz de la Sierra 48HFP, your film must be submitted on one of the following media:

A self-contained Quicktime file

  • Media: USB Flash Drive (preferred) or Data DVD
  • Codec: DV-NTSC, DVCPRO HD, MPEG-4, or H.264 (with a data rate of 8Mbps)
  • Resolution: HD 1280x720 or SD
  • Aspect Ratio: 16:9 (Widescreen) preferred
  • Preferred Frame Rate: 23.97
  • Extension: MOV, MP4, or M4V


  • No media will be returned.
  • We are working on a MAC – please format your USB for both PC and Mac (EXSAT preferred)
  • Make sure your complete movie is in the file
  • Please check your sound levels to ensure they are relatively even throughout the film – one of our biggest problems with submissions is films that are very loud in some places and hard to hear in others
  • Please submit a back up copy of your film – as long as we can work with a version of the film that was submitted on time, you're eligible for judges awards
  • MiniDV tapes and video DVDs are not being accepted
