ENTRY FEE WAIVERS
Entry fees cannot be waived, so please keep this in mind when filling out the application. BV&FF relies on support from the filmmakers & its' sponsors. In these economically challenging times with NEA, State Arts Councils and arts organizations cutbacks, along with independent producers exceeding their budgets, we can sincerely empathize with the filmmaker and the Art of the State.
