  1. Hi There,

    I'm thinking of entering in the festival, Jan 2001. Can you please explain the term Broadcasting that you use in the application form. My question is, will my entry be broadcast on Television or is it more just to mean showcased at the event?

    I have archive material in my documentary that I only have rights to broadcast a certain number of times.

    Thank you

  2. I want to submit a film for competition. Is there an official entry form? Can I submit the script, photo and advertising material by email? Which address? What is meant by a digital script?


  3. Hi, I have the same question as Liz above. I'd like to submit a film that cannot be broadcast or released online (due to Academy Awards entry). Can you please confirm the films will only be screened on the film festival's screens?

  4. Hi there,
    We have recently finished our Documentary on the 10 year Civil War in Bouganville. It shows how through the use of the New Zealand Peace Keeping mission, we can obtain Peace through non-violent means. These include the introduction to different cultures, the protection and strength of women and the power of the Haka and Guitars.
    I would REALLY like to submit my film- can I still enter?
    Thank you,
