    DVXFest – XMAS HOLIDAY MINIFest – Official Rules
    1. Make a XMAS HOLIDAY (For the politically correct) movie that is a minimum of 3 minutes and no more than 6 and does not exceed a hard R rating (if you are unsure, ask first).
      1. 6 minutes and 1 second is a disqualification as is 2 Minutes and 59 seconds.
    2. You must use a DVXuser sanctioned leader as the first moving images in your film.
      1. Leaders available at: www.dvxfest.com/leaders
      2. You only have to use the visuals (included audio not required)
      3. The use of the leader does NOT count against your 3 to 6 minutes
    3. You must use the following prop(s) somewhere in your film (YOUR CHOICE):
    A Snow Globe

    or

    A Hockey Stick or Baseball Bat or Golf Club

    or

    The Decapitated Head of Santa's Head Elf. (Just kidding)

    A backpack.



    1. You must use original or licensed material in your film. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. DVXuser (or its partners) assumes no liability for copyright violations. We will make a good faith effort to identify any and all copyright violations in submitted entries.
    HOLIDAY XMAS FEST Run Dates




    Shooting dates start now. The dates to make your film are from NOV 24th, 2011 to DEC 23, 2011. The deadline for uploads will be December 23, 2011, at 4pm Pacific Standard Time. HOSTING WILL BE ON AS VIMEO CHANNEL TO BE ANNOUNCED WITH A PASSWORD

    XMAS HOLIDAY MINI Fest Promotion
    1. No more than 15 seconds of footage from your film is to be publicly displayed prior to the conclusion of the festival. (DVXuser may grant a waiver for live film festivals that premiere prior to the conclusion of DVXFest. You must make this request in writing prior to any public viewing.)
    2. You may promote your film (and dvxfest in general) on, or outside of, DVXuser. Please do not register to websites simply to spam links to your fest entry. Utilize channels and communities you are already involved in. “Spammy” behavior will be grounds for disqualification.
    *DVXuser reserves the right to alter or edit these rules until December 15th, 2011.
    **DVXuser reserves the right to refuse entry for any reason.

    Required line of dialog?
    "Ho, ho, ho"
    "It's Christmastime bitches!"
    "Jingle my balls"
    "Can't you see it's Christmas?"

    Just my suggestions

    When I first saw the required line of dialog "TO BE ANNOUNCED ASAP", I thought "Dang, that's gonna be hard/weird to work into the script."

    I'm surprised the first suggestion wasn't "Ho, ho, ho, you hoe".

    Just go ahead and write! The important thing is to get the story down. The line is not a major plot point so you really can work around it. Once you start writing you may be surprised what comes out. I know Keaton is surprised at my first pass...
