Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY MOVIE OR SHORT FILM FOR THE CW INDY FILM FEST?:
First Rule: Your movie or short film needs to be 100% finished before we’ll consider screening it.
Second Rule: Your movie or short film needs to be 100% finished before we’ll even look at it and consider screening it.
Third Rule: When your movie or short film is completely finished, just send us off a screener to watch and consider. Make sure you include contact information so we can get back to you if we do decide to screen your short or feature, and patiently wait to see if we get back to you.
It’s that easy. Since we’ve always supported the independent filmmaker, we don’t do things like your average every day film festival does things. Namely, we don’t charge to screen your movie or short film and just take your money and run whatever somebody sends us. We simply watch everything that is sent to us and fit as many indy films into the weekend schedule that we can squeeze in around all the other guest related movies and events that we normally cram into a Wasteland Weekend. We have and do keep film submissions for up to one year’s time so if we don’t screen your film or short one show, it very well could make the next show. We do watch and tend to enjoy everything we receive but please don’t take it personally if we don’t screen your submission. Chances are it just didn’t make it into the weekend schedule because we received way too many submissions in a short amount of time and/or had more films that fit a certain theme that matches the weekend we’re currently running. Because we don’t charge to screen your film or short, it does not come with free passes into the show. A pass into the CW Show however is much cheaper than any film festival submission prices.
