Yes

What kinds of film's can be submitted?

We accept films from any genre and all filmmakers that submit their film will receive the film marketing package. However, keep in mind that the final selections will need to be films that demonstrate some kind of positive impact.
How do you select finalists?

IIFF was created to support filmmkers that want to have a positive impact with their films and their careers. Given that filmmaking is a creative process we use a broad definition of positive impact.
Positive impact does not mean that your film needs to be a scientific documentary that offers a definitive solution for climate change (although that would be great) – it can be a fictional feature film about a woman trying to succeed in a male dominated industry.
We acknowledge that films like these really do have a significant positive impact and we want to recognize them. We accept films from any genre and all filmmakers that submit their film will receive the film marketing package.
