The title of your work as you market it in English language countries. If you market under your non-English title, enter that here.
What is the OFFICIAL TITLE of your film or series as you MARKET it in the primary language? If you always use the English-language title to market the work, enter the English-language title here. Make sure the title uses the spelling, capitalization, and punctuation you want used in our program and online.
Do you prefer us to use the native language title or the English title when talking about your film or series?

Image Assets

Deadline:

This section asks for the key image assets necessary for presentation in the online screening catalog. Hover over the field to get information on exact specifications.

Logo

Square Poster
Square Poster The square poster is typically used in print materials and social media. As the name implies, it should be in a square format minimally 1000x1000.
Landscape Poster
Landscape Poster

The landscape poster is used mostly for displaying your show in the online screening catalog. It is an asset you should be able to use well beyond this festival. It's a 1920x1080 JPG image. The form will reject anything that is not 1920x1080.
Portrait Poster
Portrait Poster
508x752
