Music videos must have been completed on or after January 1, 2015. Only music videos up to 10 minutes in length will be considered by The Render Festival (“Render”).
Render does not guarantee submitted music videos will be shortlisted for the festival. All information posted by Render is subject to change without prior notice.
Individuals and groups (“Applicant”) submitting music videos to Render for consideration and possible showing must possess all necessary rights and permissions for all video and audio tracks submitted to Render. Render is not responsible for clearing, publishing, performance or other rights for the music videos it screens or promotes on its site or at the festival.
The Applicant grants Render the non-exclusive rights to reproduce the video in whole or in part and to showcase the video for the purposes of the festival or its promotion (until December 31, 2021). Render agrees not to claim the rights in this paragraph in relation to submissions that are not selected for showing.
If the Applicant’s film is selected to be shown at the festival, the Applicant will be required to submit a high quality, screen-ready digital version to Render (i.e., the video must be at least 720 pixels high, and in MPEG, MOV, AVI, or MP4 format). Failure to submit a video meeting the minimum technical quality requirements by September 15, 2016 may result in elimination from Render.
If you are younger than 18 years old please send a letter to Render written by your legal representative (e.g., parents), which enables you to enter the contest. Due to legal restrictions we cannot accept applications by people younger than 18 years old without consent from their legal representatives.
