What do I have to do to enter my film and get a chance to have it represent my country at the festival ?
In order to submit online follow this 2 steps procedure :
Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) :
- 3 photos of the film and 1 photo of the director(s)
- 1 SRT file (subtitles file) in English or regular subtitles list (only if SRT is not available). (Provide this if your film is not already in French language, or if your film is not already subtitled in French, or if your film is not without dialogues)
Don't forget to insert the name of the film in the email's subject.
Read our regulations (download the pdf file at the very bottom of this page) and fill up the online form above. We will get back to you and give you an entry number.
Ok, is there anything else I need to know ? YES! Very important : the regulation regarding French subtitling : the festival will provide free translation to French if my film is selected : if a SRT (subtitle file) in English is provided only a "clean" film without subtitles will be needed. If a regular dialogues list is provided I will need to either produce a SRT file or embed myself, free of charges to the festival, the French subtitles onto my film on time for the festival.
The festival will not pay screening fees.
Is there any competition ? : The festival has no competition except for the Public Award and the Young Public Award. Being the sole representative of your country IS the competition!
When will I know if I'm selected ? The 2017 official selection will be announced in February 2017 on this website and on our Facebook Page and Group. Directors or contacts for the films selected will also be reached by email. Email spam filters are sometime too zealous so don't forget to always check your spam box in case a good news ends up there!
You can also submit your film through clickforfestivals.com. Please note that it is a paying service.
