Can I get the submission fee waived?
CIFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Fees collected through the Call for Entries process assist in our operations, so please do not request a waiver, unless you meet the following requirement.
If you are an Applicant who is also a CIFF alum, meaning that CIFF has screened one of your feature or short films in a previous festival, then CIFF will waive your submission fee for any film meeting the CIFF45 requirements outlined herein.
To request a fee waiver, please contact Beth Steele Radisek, CIFF’s Special Programs Director, at email@example.com.
