SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION
Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the presentational format will need to be in our office two weeks prior to festival. Be sure to indicate aspect ratio of your film/video as well as any other special screening or presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.
