Description

You are cordially invited to be part of the upcoming 50th Annual WorldFest-Houston! The oldest Indie Film Festival in the whole wide world! WorldFest gave first awards to giants of the film industry, including Spielberg, Lucas, Ang Lee, the Coen Brothers, Ridely Scott, John Lee Hancock, Randal Kleiser, Oliver Stone, David Lynch and literally hundreds more! We are happy to accept Online FilmFreeway Screeners! We have Big LG 110″ Digital Screens for our juries! Not little laptops. Since we show our Remi Winners on big AMC Theater screens, it seems right that we look at your production on a big flat screen! We do also accept DVD, BLURAY or USB FloridaASH/PEN/JUMP DRIVE for juding and for Theater Screening. Region Zero, please! (If you win a Remi, you may be screened on big AMC 60-foot screens to 600+ theater audience!!


Submission Requirements:

All filmmakers understand and accept that if their film is accepted for presentation and screening at the film/video festival, they grant full and unrestricted permission for HIFF, Inc. to screen the film/video at times of the festivals choice and to charge an admission fee for the presentation of the digital video program. All the presented film/videos do win a Remi Award from the festival (HIFF). WorldFest only screens winners.

Submission Deadline: January



Fees:

Because of our 12 major competitions and the 200+ sub-categories, WorldFest does present a lot of awards, but they are both earned and deserved. No awards are given in any category unless the scores from the juries are high enough to place for honors. Overall only 15-20% of the total category entries actually win an award at WorldFest. However, everyone attending the Grand Awards Gala wins an award, because we only invite the actual winners, which makes for a delightful and very enjoyable evening, since there are no disappointed “nominees” that do not win anything. Those that do not win an award are informed by mail with personal letters prior to the festival. (For Shorts over 15 Minutes, please scroll down to LONG SHORTS to enter. We accept shorts to 69:59 Minutes, after that we consider them to be Featurettes).
