Submission Rules:

1. No exercises or tests please. Submit short films only. The North American definition of a short film tends to focus much more on character whereas the European and Australasian forms tend to depend much more on visual drama and plot twists.

2. Students may submit to only one category per project.

3. An entry form must be completed for each category and submission.

4. Students must use the file format specified. QuickTime: DV-NTSC Codec. If you use another format it may be disqualified.

5. Each entry must be a single project, not several strung together. Demo Reels or animation tests, will not be accepted as program submissions. Each submission must contain one concept, topic or story.

6. You must submit the appropriate entry form in print to:
a. the 2D Animation Lab at 540 Powell in Room 240
b. with Jeanette at 180 New Montgomery in Room 301
c. the Lab Techs at 601 Brannan in Room 205 or Stop Motion Lab

7. Project files must be submitted in the following manner: Short film submissions must be placed in the appropriate category on the respective location network with the following naming convention: (name_student

8. Rights and Clearences: Students must obtain rights to music, sound effects and models before their projects will be considered for festivals, broadcasts or exhibitions. Failure to do this will not disqualify students from the Fall Animation Festival, but may prohibit the showing of these pieces outside of this context. The Academy of Art University reserves the right to use students’ work for internal demonstration, promotion and presentation and will hold the rights to all work collected after the event. No implied agreements or limitations will be accepted upon submission. Students also maintain the rights to display and use their work without limitation. Students indemnify the Academy of Art University for content used beyond fair use. Your submission of the entry form and entry materials signifies your understanding of these rights.
