Call For Entries

How do I know that you received my submission?

  • If submitting through Withoutabox, please check your account after submitting to make sure that your submission meets our requirements and has been accepted for consideration.
  • If your Withoutabox submission has a BLUE dot with a checkmark, we have received your online submission, your 3 DVDs, and your submission has met all our requirements.
  • If your Withoutabox submission has a YELLOW dot, your submission has only partially met our requirements and is considered an INCOMPLETE SUBMISSION. We may have received your online submission or payment, but not yet received your 3 DVDs, we received your DVDs, but no payment, or we may have only received 1 or 2 DVDs in the package you sent. Please contact our Entry Coordinator Beth Steele Radisek at to see what is needed to move your submission into consideration.
  • If your Withoutabox submission has a RED circle, we have not successfully received your submission. If you submitted online and sent your film in and it’s been more than 10 days, please contact us.
  • If submitting through the CIFF Online Entry Form, you’ll receive an immediate confirmation email that we’ve received your submission, as well as a copy of receipt of payment. If you’re sending in DVDs, we will contact you once they have reached our office. Please see below for more information on how to send in your DVD submission.
