We encourage you to submit all your films, both current and past. Great films don't go out of style.
To ensure that all information about your film is accurate, and so we can best promote your film in the manner you intended it to be seen, please complete our online submission form which will build your individual film page on the competition website and Film Festival Flix Streaming On-Demand site following the festival, (should you be approved for sale on the FFF Platform and agree to the Film Festival Flix distribution terms and conditions). In this form, you can add all of the film’s meta data, promotional information, director’s statement, awards, press quotes, links, key artwork, promotional images, trailer, and the film.
To onboard your film successfully so we can begin showcasing it within the Mountain & Adventure Film Festival Channel, please be sure that your key art (poster and landscape), promotional images, trailer, and film are conformed to Film Festival Flix’s delivery specs as defined below. With all elements prepared and available, it will take approximately 20 min to complete the submission.
Additionally, to be sure Mountain & Adventure Film Festival has a backup for the channel as well as for Live Festival events, please also upload your key art, promotional images, trailer, and film to the festival Dropbox at https://www.dropbox.com/request/jtpHcoZkriria9PpyDAv

This license includes the perpetual, worldwide, royalty free, right to use promotional material (including artwork and trailers) related to the Picture, the title thereof, and clips therefrom, in any and all media, now known or hereinafter devised, in connection with the advertisement and promotion of the Festival, and perpetually in connection with the advertisement and promotion of MouseTrap, Film Festival Flix, and the applicable Festival.
Licensor acknowledges that Licensor is not entitled to any compensation for exhibition of the Picture via the Festival or for any of the rights granted, unless otherwise stated, pursuant to Section 1 or 3 of this Agreement, or any share of any revenue generated to MouseTrap from the Festival or the exhibition, unless otherwise stated, pursuant to Section 3. The Picture will be exhibited as part of the Festival and may be awarded prizes and share in Festival Revenues which will be determined solely by viewer votes (see below for an explanation of the voting system): Category winners (if applicable) and the top voted film each month will be awarded the title of “Best XYZ Category Film” and "Best Film". There are no cash prizes or revenue sharing specifically related to the category or monthly winners. The Festival categories are defined in the Submission Form and are to be selected at the Licensor's sole discretion. Films will be ranked by multiplying the number of votes received within the Festival Period and the average viewer rating, based upon a 5 star scale. The top 5 films from each Festival Period will share in a percentage (as defined below) of the Adjusted Gross Revenues (Gross proceeds minus a percentage of sales for: Digital - bandwidth fees, merchant fees, digital storage fees, onboarding fees, and marketing fees; Theatrical – P&A costs) of the Festival from the Festival Period in which the film was exhibited and was ranked. The Revenue Share percentages are as follows: 1st place - 15%; 2nd place - 10%; 3rd place - 7%; 4th place - 5%; 5th place - 3%. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by MouseTrap, awards and revenues shared will be given to the winning films’ Licensor and will be fulfilled approximately 12 weeks after the announcement of the winning films for the given Festival Period.
For avoidance of doubt, except for pictures which win awards at the Festival, the failure of MouseTrap to respond in writing to an election to distribute a Picture within ninety (90) days of such election shall be deemed rejection.
To this end, and in order to induce MouseTrap to include the Picture in the Festival, Licensor represents and warrants as follows:
Licensor specifically agrees and acknowledges, however, that neither the arbitrator nor any court shall have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, nor shall the arbitrator or any court have the power to order MouseTrap to include the Picture in the Festival or to award other injunctive or non-monetary relief. The arbitrator shall have the power to award, and shall be required to award, to the substantially prevailing party in any such arbitration, its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the arbitration (including, without limitation, reimbursement of that party’s share of the arbitrator’s fees and IFTA administrative charges). The arbitrator’s award shall be final, binding and non-appealable. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction in the United States. In agreeing to this exclusive arbitration provision,
Licensor hereby waives, forfeits and relinquishes any right or entitlement that it might otherwise have had to bring or litigate any claim or claims encompassed by this agreement in any federal or state court against MouseTrap, the Festival, or any affiliate, and further waive, forfeit and relinquish any right to a trial by jury with respect to such claim or claims.
i) Licensor hereby acknowledges that it has the right to consult with an attorney of its own choosing with respect to the License and these Rules, Terms and Conditions and have done so or freely or voluntarily elected not to do so without coercion or duress.
j) The License together with these Rules, Terms and Conditions shall supersede any information obtained elsewhere, including, but not limited to, information contained in any Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) documents and/or rules and regulations documents from prior years.
k) Licensor further acknowledges that no oral representations, inducements, promises or assurances of any kind, and no representations, inducements, promises or assurances not set forth in the License or these Rules, Terms and Conditions, have been made to Licensor or anyone associated with the Picture by the Festival, MouseTrap, or any MouseTrap Related Parties.
