1) No time length limits or constraints. Films of any length are welcome.
**Please note that submitting a longer film does not make you ineligible, but decreases the probablity that it will be screened since one of the main purposes of the festival is to showcase as many student films as possible. Films 15 minutes or longer are subject to being screened at a time and a place other than Final Cut. No film is guaranteed a Final Cut screening regardless of length or personal funding sources.
2) We welcome fiction, documentary, commercial work, and animation.
3) As a student film festival, every film must be submitted by a current BYU student and feature a primarily student crew.
4) All film content will be evaluated in accordance to the BYU Department of Theatre and Media Arts Selection, Viewing, and Creating policy. You can access the TMA Viewing and Creation policy here.
5) Film content must follow the guidelines established in the Aims of a BYU Education and the BYU Honor Code and have cleared all rights to script, visual and audio content.
6) The film's project leader can submit no more than 2 films for consideration
7) Initial submissions of all entries must be via a Vimeo link
1) Upload your video to Vimeo.
2) Fill out the film submission form here. (Coming Soon!)
3) ALL SUBMISSIONS DUE BY FEBRUARY 17th at MIDNIGHT.
After receiving all submissions timestamped before or on February 17th, the Selections Committee will review all submissions.
In the weeks following, you will receive an email notifying you whether or not your film will be screened.
By submitting your film, whether or not it is chosen to screen at the festival, you agree to allow your film to be part of a DVD of films compiled from the festival and held at the department level as well as distributed to local libraries. However, your film will not be sold. (This will be a required check box on the google form at the bottom right before they click "submit".)
*As noted, these sections are entirely optional. Neither giving nor denying permissions affects your eligibility in any way to be screened or to win awards in Final Cut.
