2022 Festival fee waiver signup form
This form is meant for filmmakers in need, especially filmmakers currently living in Iran, Sudan, Congo, Venezuela and other countries mentioned below, since international sanctions have made it hard to pay festival fees. If you aren't from these countries, but are in need you may apply and explain your situation. We will then assess the situation. Please read the following four important points below.

1) Make sure to read the Festival’s submissions terms and rules form before you submit. See the link below.

2) It is mandatory to fill out the entire form and to respond to all the questions before you submit it. Incomplete signups will not be considered.

--->> short answers like "yes," "we like the festival / please give a waiver code" or answers that do not answer the questions, do not help you! And it lowers your chance to receive a  waiver code <<---

3) Please do not attach any links to your film in this form. The point of giving a waiver to you, is that you will be able to submit your film for free to our FilmFreeway (FFW) film submissions. So that we can watch the film on FFW. So please wait until you get a positive response on your request.

4) Because we are currently in an off-season period, festival preparation wise, processing your waiver request may take up to several weeks or a months. We assure you that you will get a response from us.


Update: We updated the form, because we notice that a lot of people do not really answer the questions. Next to that, this form is overtly for people in need, we noticed that there are also a lot of people not in need who try to submit their film for free. Besides that, we really want to make sure that we give films a chance that fit with our festival mission. So we hope you understand that it therefore becomes even more important to make sure that we only help the people in need.

TIP!: simple answers and saying i just like the festival doesn’t really help. Also we are not a human rights film festival, humans rights are part of the program, but we are about awareness creation, solidarity, inclusion and social justice.

Thank you in advance and we look forward to watching your film.
