From Feb 22nd to September 19th

Rules and Terms

1. Submitted Films Must Adhere to the Following Requirements:

  • There is no restriction on the theme content or format of the submission. In-Between-Us Film Festival’s definition of a feature-length film is of 5 minutes or more and 100 minutes or less.

2. Eligibility Requirements

  • Every group (less than 5 people) may submit one film product.

  • This is an international film festival and thus accepts films from anywhere in the world as long as you were in high school or under 21 years old when the film was made.

  • We do not have any premiere requirements for devices but do prefer devices later than IPhone11(including IPhone11).

  • All music and other copyrighted material used in the film must be properly authorized. Applicants have the obligation to ensure the legal status of the film itself. In the event of a legal dispute (e.g., any copyright infringement including but not limited to the rights to the music, stills, or videos featured in the submission) before, during, or after the film festival, the applicant will assume full legal responsibility and bear all costs related to the dispute (including attorney and court fees).

  • Due to the fact that our film festival judges are from both China and the U.S., all submissions are required to have English subtitles embedded.

  • The Festival reserves the right to use all materials for promotional purposes and for the Festival Catalogue. During the Festival, selected films will be available on YouTube, open exclusively to accredited film professionals, journalists, and festival organizations. By accepting to participate in the In-Between-Us film festival, submitters grant permission for their film to be included in the video library, unless otherwise mentioned in the submission email.
