OWA Direct Submission Form - Waivers

Hello filmmaker.  If you have reached this page, that means you have been invited by the Programming team to submit your film to Other Worlds Austin with the submission fee waived.  Please be sure to read all the rules on the How to Submit page as your submission, despite being free, will still be bound by all of the same rules as all the other submissions.  Remember, we do not pay screening fees under any circumstance.  If your film is selected to screen at the festival, you agree to allow us to screen the film without receiving any compensation, monetary or otherwise.

If you have somehow reached this page without a PERSONAL INVITATION, do not fill out this form.  All entires here will be checked against the official list - if your name is not on it, your film will not be considered for the festival.  If you have reached this page in error, please submit your film here.
