General Questions
Can I submit to IN.S.A.N.E. animation filmfestival via paper/email/ air mail?

We cannot accept submissions that do not go through our online submission format FilmFreeway and Festhome. It is difficult to keep track of films when there’s no electronic record of a submission.

How will we be notified?
Accepted films will receive an invitation letter by email. Films not accepted will also be notified by email by the notification deadline. Your status of not accepted and accepted will also be reflected in FilmFreeway. If you do not receive an email within 7 days after the notification date, please contact us. Before contacting us, reconfirm who is listed as the primary contact and their email.
We also suggest a permanent contact be used as the primary submitter and that a phone number and email address always associated with the production be used. Note: Email filters have a hard time with addresses that start with info@, mail@, admin@, etc. If you’re using an info@myfilm.com email address it’s more likely your notification email may not arrive. We also suggest using an email address that someone checks at least daily.
