Things you should know:

If you break or lie about any of the entry rules listed above, you will be banned & blacklisted for 5 - 8 years depending on severity of the offense.

There is no fee for submitting a film, but we do ask that filmmakers purchase their own tickets to the event.

If you're not able to attend, you can still submit. We'll show your film if we don't get enough entries from filmmakers who are able to attend. However, if you or a representative can't be there, you will not be eligible to win and the red light will stay on for the entirety of the film.

If we receive more than enough entries, precedence is first given to filmmakers who can attend, and then to filmmakers newest to the competition.

If your entry doesn't make it into the competition, you can keep submitting it each month until it's accepted. No edits required. You will need to re-submit the entry form each month. 

Films that have compete in the YouTube show are permitted to enter the in-person show at the Parkway as well. No edits required.

If a film was gonged at a previous competition, filmmakers are invited to re-work it and try it out on the audience again. Substantial edits required.

Below are entry requirements. Check all that apply. If you can’t check all the boxes, this is not the competition for you. The checking of these boxes is legally binding and if caught lying you’ll be banned for 5 - 8 years depending on the severety of the offense.
