The Refugee Film Festival is open to all film genres (feature, animated, documentary, etc.) on the issues of refugees, internal displacement and statelessness, and/or films made by former/current refugees.

Please indicate if your film has Japanese subtitles.

The submitted screener DVD will not be returned to the entrants.
After official selection for any Refugee Film Festival program, the festival has the right to use the publicity material (press books, posters, stills etc.) to promote the festival.

If the film is selected, all shipping costs and insurance to and from the festival office are the sender's responsibility. Films must be accompanied by return instructions.
