SELECTION & AWARDS
Film entries will be judged by a Selection Committee.
Prizes in each competition will be awarded by a jury of industry professionals. Films that are in distribution are eligible for screening, but are out of competition and ineligible to receive prizes.
To be determined. All film entries without distribution are eligible for the Military Channel Award, which may include broadcast on the Discovery Military Channel. All film entries without digital distribution are eligible for the GIFF digital distribution program through GIFF’s digital distribution partner.
Competition is open to U.S. and International entries. No repeat entries. Send entries in sturdy, reusable containers or bubble wrap envelopes. There is no limit to the number of films you can submit to the festival. Each film must be submitted with a separate entry.
Entries must be submitted on DVD for pre-screening (NTSC). Festival screening format will be provided at a later date.
Although every possible care will be taken with tapes and films while in our possession, we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage. Do not send original prints or tapes. Notification of acceptance into the festival will be made on or by March 15, 2014. Please keep the festival notified of any address/phone changes.
