You may enter this year’s Festival using the services of FilmFreeway. Moviemakers pay nothing extra–just the regular Festival fee (currently $15 for students and $25 for everyone else).
The feedback we’re getting is that FilmFreeway’s customer service is terrific. That certainly has been our experience from the Festival side.
You may, of course, enter the competition using our online submission form, but we urge you to give FilmFreeway a try. Setting up your submission information with FilmFreeway will enable you to enter a wide variety of other festivals.
We do request that before submitting with FilmFreeway, you visit our contest page to make sure that you qualify. You’ll also note that to enter the competition, you will need to upload your trailer to either vimeo.com or youtube.com.
IMTF will begin to accept entries to its next festival starting October 1, 2014. We will be accepting trailers in all genres–for completed movies and for movies still in the dream stage. Entries must have a rating no higher than PG13.
On October 1, we will post the prizes and all the rules.
If you have questions before then, please write firstname.lastname@example.org
