Our mission is to create an online film festival with the best independent short films worldwide and this makes our selection process quite tough. But in order for your film to be selected, it’s quite simple: your film must be awesome. That’s about it. However please still note the following:
Before you publish your film, please consider
- New film: Whether created years ago or just newly rendered is not important.
- Rights: We demand that all films have all the necessary rights (for publication), including the music, in order for us to present them on our platform. We assume no responsibility for published films on the platform.
- Free: We only publish films which are free for audiences.
We would like to avoid
As the presented films are as diverse as our audience, there is no rule of thumb on Retrospective of Jupiter. However, we would like to point out the following does not match our basic concept:
- Commercial pieces or purely promotional films (Branded films excluded)
- Timelapse or travel photography films
- Comedy sketches based on a single punchline
Where should I upload my film before submitting?
We prefer films which are uploaded on Vimeo or YouTube. If your film is not yet released, you can put it on YouTube – unpublished and only accessible via link (setting it to unlisted).
