5th Ave Cinema strongly encourages all filmmakers to use original or copyright free music for their soundtracks, however 5th Ave Cinema does not enforce that filmmakers use copyright free music. Films created for 5th Ave Cinema are seen as non-profit educational projects. Using copyrighted music can greatly reduce your opportunities for further distribution or broadcast so it is best to use music that is original or in the public domain. By submitting your film to the festival, you are granting 5th Ave Cinema non-exclusive rights to retain an archive copy of your production for the non-profit purposes of promotion and education.
Visuals Film Festival reserves the right to disqualify any submissions for any reason at the sole discretion of the 5th Ave Cinema reviewers.
If under 18, entrant and their parent or legal guardian must sign a release form.
Visuals film festival runs on May 23rd at 7PM for one night only with free pizza served.
