Entries must be submitted before June 30 2018. Any submission and/or material received after the deadline will not be accepted.
Submission of Works in Progress
It is NOT acceptable to submit a working copy of a film. ‘Work-in-progress’ entries are not allowed. MOPIFF only accepts the final version of films.
Storage of Submissions
MOPIFF retains the right to keep all submissions as well as associated materials for its use. MOPIFF reserves the right to transfer submissions to a master hard drive digital library, building a digital reference archive (“MOPIFF Permanent Digital Library”). MOPIFF will not theatrically screen for commercial purposes any films without the express written consent of the appropriate rights holder(s).
The Selection Committee will at its own discretion select nominees for each category.
ONLY the selected films will official selection notification emails be sent to by July annually. MOPIFF will also advise you of further requirements and next steps in said correspondence.
If a film has NOT been selected, the announcement of the final selection will serve as notice. For the avoidance of doubt, MOPIFF shall not comment on the grounds of not selecting a film.
For the avoidance of doubt, once a film is selected, the submitter will not be able to withdraw the entry.
