Waiver Codes vs. Promo Codes
Promo codes are not the same as waiver codes. On a daily basis, we receive email and social media requests for submission fee waivers. We do not offer waivers for any film or screenplay submission, no matter what the reason, because it would be unfair to those that have paid their submission fees. The money is used for our theater rental and judging expenses. We also have marketing and web hosting costs. Therefore, we cannot offer full fee waiver codes for your film or screenplay submission, but we can offer you a promo code to reduce the price of submission.
How do we judge films and screenplays? Promo codes help fund our process.
Film festival judges will watch your film from the opening to closing credits and will read your screenplay from the title page to the end. Your film or screenplay will be reviewed and scored by, at least, twelve (12) different judges before we make a decision. Film Festival Circuit, Inc. pays over fifty judges to review films and read screenplays, in Georgia, Texas and Oregon. Watching your films and reading your screenplays takes time, but it makes the process fair for everyone. We work hard to find the best films for our audience, regardless of when the film was made or where the film has been screened in the past.
