Rules & Terms Because of the number of entries received, not all entries are chosen to screen during the Festival. A prescreening committee, comprised of filmmakers, video-makers, and other artists associated with the Iphias International Film Festival, will watch and evaluate each entry to determine which works are selected for screening during the Festival. The following general rules apply to all entries into the 2015 Iphias International Film Festival. 1. All submissions must be through Iphias.com or our designated submission pages. 2. We encourage the submission of international film or video entries, but all entries must be in English or have English dubbing or subtitles. 3. All entries must be available for screening during the festival, which will be November 12-15th, 2015. 4. We welcome and celebrate Short Films, Documentaries, Music Videos, Online Series and Feature-Length Films. 5. Entries with a run time of 40 minutes or less are eligible for distribution through the Iphias International Film Festival network. 6. By submitting to Iphias International Film Festival, you agree to allow highlights or excerpts of your entry (e.g., a trailer) to be placed on Iphias.com for marketing and promotion of the Iphias International Film Festival. 7. You may submit as many entries as you like. Each entry requires its own entry fee. Iphias International Film Festival does not pay screening fees for films. 8. Write your Clickforfestivals.com entry number on any and all preview materials you send us, especially the outside of the package and the DVD itself. This will insure your entry is processed in a timely manner. 9. We would prefer submissions via online download. Please provide a link to a 1080p, 24 fps .mp4 of your submission for download. We will also take DVD submissions via mail but must have them in-hand by the submission deadline. If your film is chosen to show at the festival or for distribution through the Iphias International Film Festival network, you must send a full quality .mov file via download or on DVD no later than 2 weeks prior to the festival screening. If no screener is sent, the submission download or DVD will be used to screen. 10. We will notify you that we have received your entry via Clickforfestivals.com. 11. We will NOT return either preview or final exhibition materials, unless a self- addressed pre paid envelope is provided. 12. In accordance with both Iphias International Film Festival and Clickforfestivals.com policies, the entry fee is non-refundable. You will not be allowed to enter your work unless you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the Iphias International Film Festival. 13. All awards are based on the overall merit of the entry. Decisions by the judges are final. 14. Finalists will be notified on or around September 12, 2015, if their entry will be screened at the 2015 Iphias International Film Festival and considered with the other finalists for the top awards. 15. All finalists will have their entries screened at the 2015 Iphias International Film Festival, and will be featured in the festival program. In addition, films that receive the Iphias International Film Festival Award may be distributed throughout the Iphias International Film Festival network.
