Please send publicity photos only to that

-- Name of the film
-- Name of the writer-director entrant.
-- Who you are, so that we can verify that the email
and photos are genuine.
Please send only stills from the action, not head
shots or shots

receive second priority (after invited film industry executives) for
tickets to screenings.
If your film is selected, you will be accorded
Room privileges if you register. The Green Room is where producers,
agents, managers, famous writers, and Expo speakers are invited to hang
