Yes. It can be any amount of time 10 minutes or less
Does the 10 minute max film time include all credits?
Yes. All introductory, team, ending, and Red Giant credits must fit within the 10 minutes or less.
What is the early bird discount?
You can get discounts on multiple items in the shopping cart including team registration dues when you purchase in advance. The further in advance you purchase something the higher the discount.
Can I submit an already made film?
No. You have to create a new film for the Red Giant Film Festival.
What am I allowed to do before the start of the 10 days of shooting?
You can recruit cast and crew, find equipment, brainstorm and create concepts, scout locations, and even write your script. EVERYTHING ELSE must be done during the 10 day shooting period. We suggest NOT doing too much before the opening ceremony as your script and locations will be directly effected by the 8 randomized parameters you will get that night.
What makes the red giant festival different than other festivals?
See all the Information Tabs for more information on what makes us different at the bottom of the Festival Home Page. The following is just a summary:
1 ticket gets you into all the premieres and the Mix & Mingle
1 ticket gets you into the award show & After Party
We don't force you to come to the awards show to find out if you are nominated. You find out the night of the Premieres. We allow you to prepare more things before the shooting window
Our venues are amazing and the events are a classy and fun
We allow you much more time than many festivals and competitions but still a short enough time period to make it challenging
The team lead will determine who gets the crystal statue award if they don't take it themselves. Red Giant will provide certificates of recognition for all those team members who were pertinent in the winning category. For example, if your team wins Best Ensemble with a cast of 10 people, 10 official Red Giant winning certificates will be given to those 10 cast members and the team lead will take the crystal stature award generally
How do I redeem any services won from competing?
You will be connected to the service providers/sponsors to arrange when the services can be redeemed
What happens if we don't get all the parameters in our film?
It's ok. Your film will still get screened at the premiere night you just wont most likely get the Best Use of Parameters Award
What would cause me to be disqualified from winning awards & prizes?
Shooting outside the given 10 days shooting period
Not submitting all required items by the submission deadline
Not following the assigned/chosen genre
Your film being longer than 10 minutes
What would disqualify my film from being screened?
Not submitting your film
Gratuitous or excessive nudity, violence, or language
Can we use purchased stock fotage to be part of our film?
Yes. Up to 30 seconds of your film can be purchased stock footage or 10% of the film, whichever is less
what am i agreeing to as a team lead & submitting a film to the red gaint festival?
