When you complete your online submissions form you will be prompted to make your payment. Our submission form accepts all major credit cards. Please – please – do NOT forward us any cheques or cash, as we cannot accept these for any reason.
When you are logged into your account, go to http://www.thesmalls.com/festival. From there simply follow the instructions in The Smalls Film Festival submissions section. Please make sure that you are only entering films that you have created and/or own all the rights to the materials and music used. Not a member yet? Sign up and get started with showcasing your films.
The categories are: Comedy, Drama, Documentary, Animation, Music Video and Local Filmmaker.
After your submission form has been completed and confirmed, you will not able to edit it. If you need to inform us of any changes to your address, etc., please email firstname.lastname@example.org directly with your request.
We are reviewing and judging films as if they are complete and polished works. So we recommend that you submit the version of your film that you are most proud of and you feel you want to showcase. We will not accept multiple versions.
As long as your film follows the rules of The Smalls Film Festival you can submit it again. You will still need to complete the online submission form and pay the entry fee for this year.
Your film can be up to 20 minutes long.
You need to have all rights and clearances BEFORE you submit your film. Make sure that you read the rules of The Smalls Film Festival again before you enter.
Once you have completed the submission form, you will receive a confirmation email from The Smalls. But don’t worry if it takes a little time (sometimes the elves are sleeping). If you have not received an email from us within 24 hours, send email@example.com an email to confirm your entry has been received.
Yes, but make sure that your film fits into the category as described under Awards. As you complete your submissions form, you will get to mark the category you want to enter. You can only choose one category. Should the judges feel that your film is better suited for a different category, someone from The Smalls will contact you and offer you the option to move your film into that category.
We will notify all successful entrants of their status in August 2016. Please make sure your contact details are correct and if you have not heard from us by 26th August 2016, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a notification.
We will notify you of this shortly after you have received the notification of your status. We want you to have enough time to make travel plans, if necessary.
The Smalls Film Festival takes place 2nd – 7th September in London, UK. Specific venues for screenings and events will be announced closer to the festival start date.
Directions will be available closer to the festival, after all events and venues have been finalised.
