FILM ACCEPTANCE AND SCREENING PROCESS

The End of Days Film Festival has teamed up with the Best of Film Festival to screen only the best films submitted to the EOD Festival. This means that the End of Days Film Festival will accept a large number of films, but only a select number of films will screen.

The 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.*Not all accepted films will screen at the End of Days Film Festival. Filmmakers will be notified of their films acceptance status via Filmfreeway.

Accepted films will then be reviewed and nominated for awards. Filmmakers will be notified by EOD staff of their nomination. Award nomination laurels will be given to all nominated films. Winners will then be chosen and announced. A select number of award winning films will then be chosen to screen at the Best of Film Festival.

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.
