All ‘Film of the Month’ winners will be entered into a special list and the winning film will receive a ‘Film of the Year’ distinction at the end of the year.

All winning films will be given a printable AWARD CERTIFICATE, while to the ‘Film of the Month’ award, PRIZE MONEY + a FREE TMFF TROPHY will be awarded. A free trophy will also be awarded to the Trailer of the Month, Student Film of the Month, Screenplay and Film of the Year winners.

There will be 6 Nominations for the ‘Film of the Month’ Award, and three for each ‘Category’/’Individual’ award.

Authors cannot submit more than two entries per month and can only submit the same entry every month (unless shortlisted/winning). Only one filmmaker can win prize money each month and cannot submit the same winning film for the next 12 months.

Films

Note that short films as well as feature films of any genre and format up to 140 minutes are accepted.

All films must have been made in or after 2015 and have English subtitles (except for music videos and unless English is the main language spoken). Any genre and format is accepted (from 1 minute films to long, narrative short films).

Entries that are submitted in and after the 25th day of each month will automatically be considered for the following month's edition (excepting the films submitted in categories that have below 5 films at the moment of entrance. 5 films per category must be submitted in order for that specific category to receive awards.)

There will be 6 Nominations for the 'Film of the Month' Award, and three for each 'Category'/'Individual' award.

All films of any genre and format are eligible to win/be nominated to one or more of these awards.

A film with more than one category (e.g. Animation and Experimental) can only be nominated for one 'Animation' or 'Experimental' award. Also, if one new category reaches 5 or more selections (e.g. Documentary), we will add a new award for that specific category (e.g. 'Documentary of the Month').

The audience award prize will be given to the film that gets the most votes by the end of each monthly competition and has an average of at least 4 stars out of 5.

Even though, as usual, each film has its own page, the submitter can decide whether they want their full film uploaded/embedded on our website. If not, a trailer must be provided. Keep in mind that the judging will be the same.

Services

By submitting your service request on our website you agree to let us use your submitted data to create what you have asked for. All services will be delivered as specified in the 'Services' page. All reviews will be published on our website and social platforms. You can also request the removal of your review by the end of the monthly competition.

Rights

By submitting your film to our festival you agree that your piece of work can be uploaded/embed on our website. The filmmaker/institution that is submitting the film must own the rights to do so and is responsible for the content they are providing. By submitting, the filmmaker allows TMFF to create a page for their film without infringing copyright of any kind of form.

How does it work?

After the submission is complete and the film is accepted, we will upload/embed your film/trailer on our website for everyone to see. Winning films will be highlighted.

Notification

One day before the end of the month, TMFF will announce the nominations for every award. The next day (which is the last day of the month) winners will be chosen and the 'Film of the Month' project will have won the prize money!

Both winning and unsuccessful films can be deleted from the website after one month as long as the submitter decides to do so.
