SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Updated 21 April 2020- Please read important new updates!

General Guidelines (All Submissions)

Participants are invited to create and submit one submission per category (if they choose) to the festival. This means that each student could submit one short film, one piece of music, and one podcast, but not multiple submissions to one category.

The deadline for submissions has been extended. All submissions are now due by 4 May. Once the submissions are reviewed to make sure they fit the guidelines listed below, they will be showcased in a live-streamed event over the Thunder Broadcasting Network on 13 May, and displayed permanently on the SJA website following the event at arts.sjakeepingfaith.org/mfm. A panel of faculty judges will award “Judge’s Choice” recognitions in each category and public votes will be taken to award “Viewers Choice” recognitions in each category.

The following guidelines apply to all entries:

  • Fit the Theme
    • “Made for More” can mean a lot of things to different people. You are encouraged to do your best with trying to create a short film, piece of music, or podcast that illustrates this theme in a special way to you personally.
  • Appropriateness
    • All submissions must be SJA appropriate. Inappropriate content includes (but is not limited to), in an explicit or implied manner, the following:
      • Suicide, drugs or alcohol, sex or related to personal bodily functions, guns or other violent weapons, infidelity or cheating in relationships, swear words or words that are closely related to swear words (example: “screw you”, “get lit”, etc)
      • Submissions that would like to attempt to handle these in a tactful way that do not glorify them should reach out to Mr. Hernandez for clarification and guidance before they start creation on the works.
    • Festival coordinators and school administration reserve the right to disqualify submissions if they are not deemed appropriate.
  • Length
    • All submissions need to be between 1 and 10 minutes in length.
  • Originality
    • To be eligible to be judged and win awards, all submissions must be entirely original. Stories, music, lyrics - no submission can contain copyrighted material in part or in whole (for festival and legal reasons) to be eligible to be judged. 
    • Any submission found to use material that uses copyrighted content in part or in whole will not be considered for voting and awards and may or may not be played on the live broadcast or posted on the website depending on the egregiousness of the copyright violation. These decisions will be made at the discretion of the festival coordinating team.
    • Any questions regarding this policy should be directed toward Mr. Hernandez (chernandez@sjakeepingfaith.org), but know that all decisions in the interest of adhereing to copyright laws over live broadcast.
