Présentation de l'édition 2023
Films whose productions were completed after June 1, 2021, are eligible for submission to CIFF47.
There are no premiere restrictions for CIFF47 submissions. Films that have been previously screened online in an official ticketed-festival capacity are eligible for CIFF47 submission.
All films under 45 minutes in length are considered short films.
Please do not submit any works in progress or any industrial or instructional films.
At this time, CIFF regrets that it has no plans to include New Media presentations in CIFF47, due to CIFF’s concerns that it will be unable to implement reasonable measures to protect participants’ health and safety in interactive environments. CIFF therefore will not consider any New Media submissions for CIFF47, including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Video Games, or Interactive Media. Should this policy change, CIFF will update its FilmFreeway page and permit New Media submissions to remain free of charge in accordance with CIFF’s past practice. CIFF encourages any New Media creators who are interested in submitting work for CIFF47 to check CIFF’s FilmFreeway page regularly for any updates.
Submission fees for CIFF47 increase over time. Early submissions are therefore encouraged. For further details, please see the Dates & Deadlines and Categories & Fees sections on CIFF’s FilmFreeway page.
CIFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Fees collected through the Call for Entries process assist in our operations, so please do not request a waiver, unless you meet one of the following requirements.
If you are an Applicant who is also a CIFF Alum, meaning that CIFF has screened one of your feature or short films in a previous festival, then CIFF will waive your submission fee for any film meeting the CIFF47 requirements outlined herein.
To request an alumni fee waiver, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CIFF will not honor any requests for submission-fee refunds. Refunds will not be issued to any Applicant for any submission, regardless of selection for CIFF47, for any reason, including changes to CIFF47’s dates, venues, or format that CIFF may announce at any time.
