An online secure screener is preferred.  All genres and lengths are considered, but all films must have a focus on music.

Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the exhibition copy will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. Be sure to indicate aspect ratio of your film/video as well as any other special screening/presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.

Cost of shipping exhibition copies to the festival is the responsibility of the entrant. Exhibition copies must be sent to the festival prepaid. The festival can not accept responsibility for damage or loss of materials while in transit. Please use as little packaging material as possible to cut down on trash.

Although the art of filmmaking is not competitive, MIC does give accolades to films selected as best in various categories: Best Music Video, Best Musical, Best Documentary Short and Feature, Best Narrative Short and Feature, and more.

Feel free to
email if you would like confirmation of entry.
