Instructions for Submission

The AUC Documentary Film Festival is accepting submissions that fit our thematic interest in the Middle East and are inspired by the documentary tradition. 

All films must be postmarked or received by December 1, 2010

Within a couple weeks of submission, we will reply with an email confirmation of receipt. The selection committee will notify all applicants by March 1, 2011 about the status of their submission. 

There is no entry fee for submitting films, however, we regret that we will be unable to return submissions to the filmmakers.
