If you prefer to mail a copy, cost of shipping exhibition prints 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.
Please do not ask for a signature confirmation, although you may ask for a delivery confirmation. Feel free to email us if you would like confirmation of delivery, or enclose a stamped, self-addressed postcard if you wish to receive confirmation that your entry has been received.
SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION
Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the presentational format 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.
Although the art of filmmaking is not competitive, Costa Rica DocuFest does give accolades to films selected as best in various categories: Best Documentary Feature and Short, Best Director, Best International Doc, etc.
RETURN OF MATERIALS
Due to the large number of entries received submission materials and videos will not be returned. For specific requests, please contact us.
