Submission through upload

SUBMISSION THROUGH UPLOAD

We’ve gathered a list of cloud-services, that are easy to use and provide okay-to-fast download speeds.
Please use one of these services to transmit your file to us. You can either send a link to a direct download of your film or you can share a folder with us. Either way, keep it simple and fast. Please do not use any services that require us to install any kind of software. Pease do not use any services that are free to use but slow on the download end. Keep away from the likes of Ul.to, Rapidshare, Filefactory… and so on.

We only accept downloads that are easy to reach. 2 clicks must do. Please don’t make us look for it.

That’s why we recommend the following…

  • Dropbox
    https://www.dropbox.com
    Free, needs registration, stores up to 2GB
    Attention: Please don’t share a folder, just send the direct link to the file. It’s easier for us this way.
  • Vimeo
    https://www.vimeo.com
    Free, needs registration and offers a download option.
    Don’t forget to provide the password with your Email when you share a download with us.
    Only Plus and PRO members have the ability to store their original, untranscoded source files on Vimeo.
    Unless you’re no Plus or PRO member, Vimeo is not the place you should be looking at right now.

Submission through Mail/Post

SUBMISSION THROUGH MAIL/POST

In case you are old fashioned or have never heard of “teh internets”, you can also send your film file through postal services. Just keep in mind that we only need the digital file of the film. We do not accept DVD-Videos or finished Blu-Rays. You can send an USB stick or a Data-DVD/CD/Blu-Ray. We do not send your items back. Please only send final cuts, no previews, no watermarks. In case your film will be picked to run in the final, official selection, we will screen the exact same file which you have sent. Please send the best quality you can get your hands on.

Deadline is July 9th 2014.
The letter must have arrived at our office within this deadline.
Keep the packaging small and thin.
