EIFF Submissions Form

You can download a submissions form directly from the EIFF website. Complete this by hand and send it along with your DVD and payment method.

THE RULES
  • ALL films (excluding Short Animation Submissions) must be UK premieres. EIFF is particularly interested in world, international or European premieres.
  • Films that have previously been publicly screened, broadcast or otherwise made publicly available (including online) in Britain will not be considered. (Please note that this rule does not apply to Short Animation films. We will accept Short Animation films that have had public theatrical screenings.)
  • Promotional films are not eligible (e.g. films promoting tourism, charitable appeals, etc.).
  • All submitted films should be no more than 12 months old by June 2013.
  • EIFF regards a short film as 30 minutes or under and a feature film as 60 minutes or over.
  • Medium-length films (30-60 minutes) can be considered in special cases. To inquire about submitting a medium-length film please e-mail submissions@edfilmfest.org.uk with the running time of your film and a brief synopsis.

PLEASE NOTE
– your fee is non-refundable. If your film does not match the criteria listed above and you still submit your film, we will not consider your film and will not refund your fee.

The final selection of all films presented at the Festival and their placement in the programme is the responsibility of the Artistic Director.
