SAICFF updates

Two important updates have been made to the film competition entry rules. First, the 5-minute minimum length requirement for the Promotional Media category has been removed. Promotional Media submissions may be up to twenty-four minutes in length (Rule #25).

Second, a new rule has been added: In order for a semi-finalist to be considered for a Jubilee Award, at least one of the following people must be in attendance at the SAICFF Jubilee Awards Ceremony on Saturday, January 10, 2009 to receive any potential awards: The film's Producer, Director or Lead Actor. Films not represented at the festival may still be screened but will not be considered for a Jubilee Award. This rule applies to all Jubilee Award categories. (Note: Special consideration may be given upon request for international film submissions.) The attendance rule also applies to semi-finalists who are eligible for the Best Young Filmmaker Award. (Rule #18)

Be sure to visit the Film Competition Entry Rules page for more information.
