What’s it all about?
You edit a 90 minute feature down to 5 minutes, submit that clip and win.
Is the movie xyz in the public domain?
Am I allowed to edit & submit movie xyz?
We don’t want you/us to get into trouble, that’s why we don’t allow the latest Marvel blockbusters. To make sure your edit stays online for the jury to look at, choose a public domain movie. If you feel courageous, you can go for the youtube ones – all the details are on the movies page.
Can I submit a 6 minute edit?
Your edit has to be between 1:00 minute and 5:50 minutes. Check the list of requirements for more details.
I am from Zimbabwe, live in Thailand and have a German shepherd – can I still participate?
Yep! Everybody can join the fun – there are no country restrictions.
Is there an entry fee? Or anything else I have to pay?
I can’t decide which movie to pick
Fear not! You can edit and submit as many clips as you like. However, to help you choose take a look at the movies page.
What kind of techniques and effects are allowed
Pretty much everything in the editor’s toolkit… which usually doesn’t include added explosions and cg spaceships.
I have this idea of editing Dementia 13 into romantic comedy…
Go for it! The Creative Edit Award is dedicated to those creative interpretations.
How am I supposed to go about participating?
Why only PD, CC and free youtube movies?
Copyright is pretty important. The big studios don’t see a joke in putting their stuff online…
Who will be the judge?
We will have a jury of acclaimed editors to judge your edits. There will also be an audience award.
If I enter my e-mail address, will you sell it to the viagra store?
No! We hate spam! That’s why we won’t send you hourly updates and that’s why we won’t pass on your details!
