Sadly not. As these are exclusive offers for Rebel members that we’ve negotiated with our partners we cannot allow anyone to freely pass on discounts to friends & family.
We do our best to give filmmakers as much notice regarding selection as possible, each festival has a different notification date that can be found on our FilmFreeway listings. On average we aim to notify all successful filmmakers at least 6-8 weeks before the event, we do receive a very high number of entries and make every effort to inform all entrants. Our notification date is also listed on all of our FilmFreeway listings, if on the rare occasion you don’t receive an official selection email please do get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
Submission costs vary based upon entry Category and how early you submit your film, on the right hand side of our FilmFreeway listings you can view the different entry fees for each festival.
We offer all screening filmmakers two tickets to festival, these tickets grant you access to all festival screenings. Please note that in the event of extremely busy screenings we do have a priority based ticketing system whereby filmmakers whose film is screening in a particular section take precedent over other attendees.
Unfortunately, at this point in time it’s not possible for us to be able to offer financial support to travelling filmmakers. However, we do our best to negotiate preferential rates with partner hotels at each of our venues – the festival page on our website is updateded with travel & accommodation information each year before an event.
After you’ve submitted you film to one of our festivals it is first watched by one of our selection committee (festival staff & winner’s alumni), we aim to have at least two members of our selection committee watch each film we receive. The selection committee then decide upon the long-list of potential films to screen, from here festival staff further narrow down the selection based upon the quality of the films & programming requirements. Once our final official selection is chosen we then pass the films onto each of our festival judges to decide upon the festival award winners.
Firstly, my apologies, we receive a really high number of entries and do our best to track all of them and inform filmmakers by the selection date. If for any reason you haven’t been contacted regarding the official selection please send us a short email with your name and film title and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
