Q: "What is the required video format for entering?"
A: Simple answer is, anything you like. We prefer a PAL format 720x576 16:9 Widescreen @ 25 FPS. If you are shooting high definition then it would be 1280x720 or 1920x1080 @ 25 FPS. But it is totally up to you. For the mobile catergory its the same... Any resolution/frame rate is fine with us as the projectors are all digital.
Q: "How strict is the 5 minute maximum duration policy?"
A: Unfortunately we have to be very strict about the 5 minute limit on films. Anything over the 5 minute length will have the film disqualified. Next year we might look at including films of various lengths but this year we do want to create as level a playing field as possible and make sure that all films have a chance to be seen.
Q: "What is the minimum length of an entry?"
A: There is no minimum duration.
