**Not all accepted films will screen at the End of Days Film Festival.

Accepted films 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 winners will receive laurels and a digital award certificate.

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.
