Q. Can I use licensed music in my film?
A. You can absolutely use licensed music in your film. HOWEVER, that only applies to when you are showing it at our red carpet screening. The film cannot be shown on social media platforms using music that you do not have the rights to. Please plan accordingly with back up original music if you do plan to use licensed music with your submission.

Q. Can I use AI to build the poster for the poster section of the contest?
A. If you choose to use AI generators, please use them as a tool on your creative design tool belt, as you would stock imagery. The final layout/design must be an original creation by you.
The top three submissions will need to provide layered files to show your work (adobe, .psd, etc)

Q. Where will the Red Carpet Screening be held?
A. The red carpet screening will be held in CHARLOTTE, NC at Ayrlsey Grand Cinemas. More details will be available on our ticket page once tickets are available.

Q. How is the voting for the films handled?
A. Voting will be determined at our Red Carpet Screening on Sept 12 using your smart phones. Each attendee will use their smartphone to vote on who they believe should win in each category.  Votes are tallied and winners will be announced that night.
