The deadline to finish your complete proposal is 30 March 2018.
If you have any questions, please email:
The submitted film should be the final screening version. If the film is not finished by the WOMEX submission deadline, at the very least a rough cut should be submitted in order to get a clear, confident idea of how the finished work will turn out.

Please note that due to budget constraints, we are unfortunately unable to offer screening fees or to cover travel costs. However, you will receive 1 free registration to WOMEX granting you access to all areas including the trade fair, conference, showcases and film programme as well as the WOMEX PR treatment (mentions on our website, newsletters and press releases, social media promotions and listed in the WOMEX Guide).


Your proposal will only be considered if you complete the following form. If you need to send a preview copy (DVD), it must arrive at the WOMEX office before the deadline Friday 30 March 2018!
To help prevent your goods getting held up at customs, ensure you clearly write on the outside of your package "for promotional use only".
