    Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.

    ---Matt Groening



    Love. Who hasn't made a fool of themselves for love? In the entire universe, nothing is more complex than a human being and no emotion is more complex than love. Hate? Hate is simple and one-dimensional. Love is anything but simple. It's messy, complex, and complicated--shifting like sand under our feet.


    Rules


    • The festival category is a short film with the theme of LOVE. Films can be in any genre as long as the theme is love. If you have any questions about whether your film conforms to the theme please ask me.
    • All films must be no longer than 6 (six) minutes total INCLUDING CREDITS. The following format must be followed. Film Title (any format), body of film, maximum of 15 seconds of credits (which must clearly acknowledge dvxuser.com).
    • REQUIRED ELEMENT: All films must include a camera in at least one scene.
    • All cameras are eligible to participate and for prizes.
    • Content must be "R" rated or lower.
    • No copyright violations, you *must* use licensed or royalty-free music
    • All filmmakers agree to grant DVXuser.com and its agents non-exclusive rights for their films to appear on a DVD or for DVXuser-sanctioned public screenings. Deliverables must be formatted as widescreen 16:9 or 2:35 aspect ratio and provided as an h.264 compressed file (either .mov or .mp4). with a maximum size of 50 MB. Additional details will be released closer to the entry deadline.
    • Contest open to every country and films may be in any language. Non-English films must have English subtitles.
    • All films must be made between November 12, 2007 and February 10, 2008 and must not have been publicly screened prior to entry. The entry deadline is 12:00 midnight Pacific Time on Sunday, February 10, 2008 and no films or revisions to films will be accepted after this date. Entry instructions will be posted closer to the deadline.
    • Films may only be promoted on DVXuser.com before screening and no actual footage from films may be screened prior to the DVXuser screening. No promotion on external web sites is allowed until after the screening has been completed.
    • Films may be entered in other festivals as long as they aren’t screened prior to February 14, 2008.
    • Users may enter their film anonymously, but must clear this with me before they post their film thread in the this forum.
    • All films will be prescreened by DVXFest staff for compliance with festival rules.
    • No entry fee
    • Prizes will be announced
    • To enter, just submit your film by the deadline. A link for a special upload page will be posted a few days before the deadline.

    Love makes you crazy, hate makes you impotent. Somewhere in the middle we can survive.

    I'm sure this will be asked, but I'll go ahead and ask it now:

    Are we limited to love as in romantic love... between lovers, or will themes dealing with love in general be acceptable as well (between two brothers for example)?
