2021 SCREEWRITING RACE RULES
*Each participant must pay a registration fee of $30 CAD, taxes included. Payment to register can be made via our website, in the "Events" section. Deadline to enter is by September 22nd. If you have not done so, please visit our webpage on how you can make the payment.
The race period will be between October 26th till 29th. Scripts must be up to 5 pages in length. Registered participants will be emailed one object, one line and one theme their film must include, or they would face disqualification. The deadline to submit a finished copy by email is October 29th.
A participant cannot partake in another team's project, nor collaborate with them, nor engaged in bad faith behaviour with malicious intent towards the Festival and the other teams. If discovered, this must be reported and will result in automatic disqualification without any refunds whatsoever.
The registration fee paid is non-refundable. We advise you to take all required precautions in advance to avoid such events from taking place.
The winner will be announced live during the Awards Ceremony on October 6th, 7-10PM. Winners will win a total prize of between $200-400 CAD (subject to change based on demand).
Failure to submit by the September 29 deadline will result in disqualification from the race. Also, failure to submit by this deadline cannot be an excuse to demand a refund as registration is non-refundable.
Also, you must have one representative from your team present during the October 6th Awards Ceremony. Make sure to enter in parentheses next to the name who that person will be.
