Frequently Asked Questions

Filmmaker Tickets

If your film is selected for inclusion in the festival, you will receive two complimentary tickets to a SLAY screening in the city closest to you. If your film is not selected, we will set aside a pair of tickets for you to purchase. Bottom line: all filmmakers will have the chance to buy tickets before the public buys them all. Filmmakers are encouraged to advise their friends and fans to purchase tickets immediately, as many of the popular screenings may be sold out or close to selling out. We do not reserve seats for large groups so they should arrive early enough to claim their preferred seating if they wish to sit with a group.

Release Forms & Entry Forms

You must provide a release form signed by every performer in your film in addition to a valid ID. You must have the rights to any music used in your films. All performers and filmmakers must be over 18 years of age. See the “Submit” page for forms and requirements.

When will SLAY winners be announced?

Whenever we have finished counting the mountain of audience ballots from screenings in the SLAY Opening Festival (Seattle & Portland), we will announce the results. Best estimate is about a week after the festival concludes.

Are there sponsorship opportunities for SLAY?
