Submission Requirements:

ENTRY FORM: River Bend partners with the online submission service FilmFreeway. Entries can be submitted via www.FilmFreeway.com

We prefer online HD submissions. We do not watch your films on iPads or small screens during the consideration process as we know it doesn’t do most films justice. We HDMI it out to a large HD flatscreen or projector with state-of-the-art studio speakers and will only watch it in HD. Uploading to Vimeo at a high bitrate and submitting that link is a great bet.

Submission Deadline: December



Fees:

From $15 to $100. Depends on the category and in which submission deadline you submit.
