The End of Days Film Festival will accept a variety of films as "Official Selections", but only a select number of films will screen at the event. This is because we receive a large number of films that we want to represent our festival, but due to the limited scheduling, we can only screen a portion of them.

The selection process is as follows:

Judges will review all the films submitted to the End of Days Film Festival. After a thorough review, EOD staff will accept films that meet the End of Days Film Festival standards. These films will be the "Official Selections" of that years festival. *Not all accepted films will screen at the End of Days Film Festival. Filmmakers will be notified of their films acceptance status via Filmfreeway.

Official Selections will then be reviewed and nominated for awards. Filmmakers will be notified by EOD staff of their nomination. Winners will then be chosen and announced. Award winning laurels and certificates will be given to all winning films.

Films chosen for screening will be downloaded from Film Freeway website. They will be screened in the format you uploaded to the Film Freeway website. If your film is screened, you will have an opportunity to provide EOD with an updated version of the film.

The End of Days Film Festival Organizers may add to or amend these rules at any time without notice.
