Important information for filmmakers

If your film is included in the Official Selection, congratulations!

If your film is not included, please do not be disheartened as the selection process is not solely based on merit, but is also influenced by the festival curators who must choose between many superb films in their pursuit of a balanced festival programme which has been tailored this year due to the COVID_19 pandemic.

All films included in the Official Selection are eligible for the WFF_2020/21 Official Selection laurels.
