MUST provide a screener download link, film information (Eg: directors name, synopsis, main lead & support actors name - for nomination award, etc). An A3 OR A4 CYMK high rezolution poster so we can promote your film/works. A good quality director's photo is desireable, for nomination in the "Best Director" category. Lead actor photo is optional. Thank you.

Upload Requirements.

PLEASE send us compressed the screener file in MP4 or mov format. They MUST NOT exceed the 2Gig size (preferably). No screener NO participation in the event. A trailer is welcome for promotional purposes (together with the poster).

For any enquiries regarding a submitted film please provide your film title, and tracking number (obtained from the platform received during your registration online).


As 3rd party submission platforms do NOT provide video selection preview listing of all films, video playback features, we will upload your film to our web site in the "Watch&Vote" links, and as an alternative and a double feature opportunity for your films to be seen by a larger public audience, also will be on YouTube . (depending on your country access, permissions etc) to increase your chances to be seen and voted for. The listing and features on youTube are excellent. Many other platforms including COLORTAPE are unable to provide such a high technical IT programming skill to implement. Hence, we are inclined to use YouTube's advanced embedded features. Those who cannot access or do not want their films on youTube you MUST send us an email to colortape@gmail and request a removal of your film from the listing. REMEMBER: if you ask us to remove your film you will loose anywhere between 10-15 points from the rating generated by viewers on YouTube.

Sometimes just enough points to be a winner of a certain category. We do not want you to diminish your chances to gain extra point. It all adds up. For example: 5points if you provide us a quality (printable rezolution) poster. Many send us thumbnail sizes. It is a NO NO!

European based filmmakers have multiple platform choices Lating Films, Slavic films, Germanic, French, Rest of European films, (English subtitles is required, embedded or SRT format is fine). Please enter either via or
