The iF3 Movie Awards are a unique event with a gala held in Montreal, Canada. Our international jury panel reviews all the movies prior to the iF3 Festival in order for the awards to be announced and given at the Festival in Montreal.


Submissions Criterias

PRO CATEGORY

iF3 has invited specific production companies to submit their films to the professional category. Additional production companies are welcome to submit their films to compete in this segment, however they will be judged on the same level as professionally made films. While we do not have specific requirements regarding what qualifies as a professional production company, the following guidelines may help classify a professional crew:

  • Sponsored Athletes
  • Significant external funding
  • Professional cinematographers
  • Professional editing
  • The revenue and sponsorship income are sufficient to financially support the parties involved
  • The production company is run as a business 

If you believe you can compete on a professional level, you are free to submit your entry in this category.

*iF3 reserves the rights to change any entry from one category to another once it has reviewed its submission.

*Each submission must be a minimum length of 2 minutes; entries that don’t respect these criteria will be rejected automatically without refund.

 


AMATEUR CATEGORY

Any production crew is welcome to submit their films to this category. While there are no absolute requirements, the following guidelines will suggest that you belong in the amateur category:

  • An average of mid to low level athlete sponsorships, if any.
  • Minimal external funding, if any.
  • Minimal distribution, if any.
  • Revenue and sponsorship income is insufficient to financially support the parties involved.
  • The film cannot exceed 40 minutes.

*iF3 reserves the rights to change any entry from one category to another once it has reviewed its submission.

*Each submission must be a minimum length of 2 minutes; all entries that don’t respect these criteria will be rejected automatically without refund.

 


OPEN SKI & SNOWBOARD CATEGORY

This category is dedicated to all films. If your film features both skiing & snowboarding , please submit it under this category. The registrations in this category are open to the professional and amateur productions. 

*Each submission must be a minimum length of 2 minutes; all entries that don’t respect these criteria will be rejected automatically without refund.

 

 


***The amateur and professional categories are mutually exclusive meaning that you may only submit your entry to one of the two. If you do not follow the rules and submit the same entry to both professional and amateur categories then iF3 reserves the right to remove your submission from consideration without a refund of entry fees.
