There are four categories in the competition that you can choose to enter. Your film can be any genre - drama, documentary, animation, comedy, art film etc. It must be entered into one of the following categories:
The film should run for one to five minutes, inclusive of credits.
When your final masterpiece is finished, click the big “Register Here” button to submit and upload. Be sure to have all the information listed below ready.
After your film is submitted and entries close, festival organisers will review the films and sort them into screening groups and judging will take place in this same time period. A shortlist will be announced in early November, and shortlisted entrants invited to the presentation night later in the month.
Each submission should include a poster card in the form of a portrait A4 jpeg @ 72dpi (595px wide by 842px hight) which will appear in the entries page and across the TAKE1 website.
The style of your poster card is completely up to you, but it should be eye catching and give a sense of the mood or genre of your work. You can make something graphic, or use a still from your film. Each poster card should include the title of your film at minimum, but can also include a subtitle or the directors name, if you want. We recommend not including much other text or information on you poster card, as this will become cluttered when reduced in size. Avoid including a blurb or quotes in your poster, leave all that for your submission information.
