Cleveland International Film Festival } March 25 – April 5, 2020 } Tower City Cinemas

Do you accept NEW MEDIA/VIRTUAL REALITY content?

We do! And it's free to submit! See below for criteria and instructions.

If you would like to submit your project to the New Media category, your project must showcase interactive storytelling, resulting in a non-theatrical presentation at the festival. Films meant to be shown theatrically will not qualify for this category. Some examples of New Media include VIRTUAL REALITY, AUGMENTED REALITY, TRANSMEDIA WEBSITES, and INTERACTIVE GAMING. If your submission meets the criteria for this category, you MUST email us directly at prior to submitting, with a description and explanation of how your project falls into the New Media category, a link or links to examples of the project, and an estimated cost of and needed equipment for presentation. If, after review, your project does meet the criteria, we will then provide a password to submit for free. Written feedback from our screening team will not be provided for New Media submissions.
