Notes
  • No media will be returned
  • We are working on Windows – please format your USB as NTFS
  • Films should be output with a non-proprietary codec. Absolutely no proprietary Final Cut codecs (ie, Apple Pro-Res). We will not be able to import the video and it will be disqualified.
  • 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 accepted
