Submission Deadline Extended – Fajr Intl. Film Festival 2018

Submission Deadline Extended – Fajr Intl. Film Festival 2018

We are currently accepting entries for the upcoming 2018 Fajr International Film Festival. We accept domestic submissions for another week in the Competition Section.

The FIFF reserves the right to make any necessary changes in event scheduling, awarding, or programming, and proudly accepts entries exclusively until March 8 for Iranian movies. Works in progress are accepted, but those which were registered in last year’s edition are not.

Filmmakers can also hand in their works to the Secretariat of the event no later than March 13. Awards and competition selections are based on overall merits of the films and are at the sole discretion of the jury and programming committee. Once accepted, you cannot withdraw your movie.

More than one entry may be submitted but separately. Entrants should submit the online application form completed by producer or distributor. By submitting your film in either DVD or Blu-ray formats to the FIFF you agree that you have read, understood, and agree to all the aforementioned festival rules and guidelines.

Under the binding regulations, running time for feature films (drama, documentary and animation for theatrical release) is under 70 minutes, and for short films (drama, documentary, animation) under 15 minutes. There are no limits to the number of entry registration, and all entries could be screened in other sections as well – unless mentioned otherwise in the registration form.

The registration form is available online. It must be printed, completed and signed by producer or distributor, and submitted to the Secretariat of the event via mail no later than the extended deadline.
