What if I don't want to submit through

  • As an alternative, we are now inviting entrants to submit through our direct online submission platform, right here on the CIFF website.

Through our system you can submit your film by Vimeo link or by sending in 3 DVDs, each clearly labeled with the film’s Title, Director, and Total Runtime.
