Q: How do I send my film in for consideration?

A: To submit a film to FLIFF, send us a DVD in a padded envelope. Make sure you don’t put a paper sticker on your DVD and you don’t send your package signature required.


Q: Can I withdraw my film once I’ve already submitted it?

A: No. Once a film is submitted it cannot be withdrawn from consideration. If a film is selected for acceptance into the official program, it cannot be withdrawn for any reason by the filmmaker.


Q: I made a mistake when submitting my information, what can I do?

A: If a film is submitted with incorrect, erroneous or false information, FLIFF reserves the right to disqualify the film from consideration. The entry fee will not be returned.


Q: Where can I see the entries that have been accepted?

A: FLIFF will post the accepted entries on its Facebook page. This may constitute the only form of acknowledgment for those not accepted.


Q: I sent my entry on the day of the deadline. Will my film be considered?

A: All entries must be received, not postmarked, by the dates outlined by the festival to qualify for fees and/ or acceptance of entry.
