3. For the pre-selection process, we accept online screeners (e.g., on Vimeo, YouTube, etc.). You may also submit your work through the Festhome platform. By submitting through these platforms, you certify that you are informed of the submission terms and conditions.

4. Screening copies must be accompanied by a completed and signed participation request. If you submit multiple works, please complete a separate application for each. If you submit your work through Festhome, you do not need to fill out a separate application, as submitting through these platforms confirms that you have read and accepted the participation guidelines.

6. PRQF may use up to 3 minutes of footage or images from the work for promotional purposes (reels, programs, website, promotional videos, etc.). Permission is granted with submission. Any restrictions on using this material for such purposes must be communicated in writing when submitting the registration form. Once the film is accepted to screen, the PRQF may request additional artwork or promotional material for use on its website.

7. english or Spanish subtitles are welcome for all films. Films in a language other than english or Spanish must be subtitled in english or Spanish unless dialogue or commentary is unnecessary for comprehension and appreciation.

8. Submitted works must be sent by April 12th, 2024.
