New submission system
We’ve just pushed live an updated film submission system, which should (we hope!) be clearer for everyone. All existing submissions are fine — there’s no need for you to go back and do it again — but from here on you’ll be using the new system.
We’ve tried to make things like licensing and consent clearer, and the bits of paper you have to print out should make much more sense now. You still have to send your film by the good old-fashioned post, but there are good reasons for this:
- We need signatures from parents or carers, in some cases. Proper signatures. Written with a pen.
- Not having a database of users’ details anywhere on the web removes that risk entirely.
- Sending us a DVD or CD of your film is cheap, relatively easy, and removes all the ‘mucking around uploading films’ stuff.
If you have any questions or comments on the new forms, please drop us a line and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
