2019 Categories:

Rendezvous continuously strives to have submission categories that work best for the indie filmmakers who submit to our festival.  So we've fine tuned them a little this year.  If we discover a need to change up the categories before the festival we will.

Films are screened by a carefully selected and diverse background of screeners to help make the selections.  Finalist will be viewed by a panel of jurors for the winners to be determined.

2019 Categories are:

Narrative Feature (Domestic & International) 

Narrative Short (Domestic & International)

Animation (Short & Feature / Domestic & International)

Documentary Feature (Domestic & International)

Documentary Short (Domestic & International)

Florida Short

Florida Feature

Short Screenplays

Waiver Codes

RFF Board Members have each made movies.  We understand more than anyone the struggle to make a movie and then find the funds to submitt to festivals.  

We try to keep our fees in a range that helps us balance your tight budgets with our goal of producing an amazing festival for you and your films.

That being said, we will review requests for discounted or waived submission fees on a case by case basis.  We have limited slots for these codes, so if you can afford the fee, please leave the slot for someone who truly can't.

We've also established a policy of that if you received a waiver code one year, you unfortunately are not eligible for it the following year.  This helps us ensure the as many possible have an opportunity to submit and use the limited slots.

All requests will be reviewed individually and there are no guarantees of approval.  If you'd like to request a discounted or free waiver code, please email us.  We try to work with filmmakers as much as possible.
