Because it’s eco-friendly and permits for a more efficient screening of your film by our screening committee and Grand Jury Members, we strongly encourage filmmakers to submit Secure Online Screeners via Withoutabox.com instead of DVD’s. (For more info, see our 2014 GIFF Submission Rules and Regulations. You may also visit: Withoutabox.com).

If you do choose to submit DVD’s, we require 2 screener DVDs for submission. The DVDs sent must be Region 1 NTSC packed in a bubble lined envelope, with the DVD disc clearly labeled with: FILM TITLE, CATEGORY, RUNTIME, CONTACT’S NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER and YOUR WITHOUTABOX TRACKING NUMBER. Please double check your DVD disc’s playability before sending. Screener DVDs will not be returned. Press materials are not needed during the submission phase and are only required by the festival if your film has been chosen as an official selection.
