MORE ABOUT US....

Q: Will a million people watch my film?
A: Maybe, but most likely about 50,000.

Q: How is my film displayed on your channels?
A: Each video features a poster art and a description. When a Roku, or Amazon Fire-TV user clicks on it, then the video streams. Currently there are video AD's that play about every 13 minutes..

Q: What methods do you use to monetize films and TV shows?

A. AD-REV SHARE (see description below.)
B. ANCILLARY PRODUCT SALES (You know, like those neat Marvel soda-pop cups you get at McDonalds.)

1.. We encourage you to place your website-URL and mission statement on your film's POSTER-ART. This art is the first thing that people see on our TV channels.

2. Put your Website address or Point of sale address on your VIDEO-DESCRIPTION. When our audience selects a film to watch, then your film's description pops up, and you may tell them how to buy your DVD or other product here.

3. Publicize your film studio or Swag at the start/end of your FILM. If a person likes your movie, then they'll be encouraged to visit your website to buy a T-Shirt or other ancillary product.

4. AD REVENUE: We partner with FILM ORGANIZATIONS. IF you are a member of a group of filmmakers, then we can offer your group a portion of the advertising revenue. Please note that this arrangement is something we do on a case by case basis for FILM MEETUP's, Film Societies, and other organizations that have over 50 members, and at least 50 films in their library of content.

Q: Where can I watch the Festival's movies and TV programs?
A: On Roku, Android, and Amazon Fire-TV devices. Programming is free and it's free to add the channels and apps. (Buy a Roku/Fire for about 25 bucks, it's a one-time fee and you simply plug it into your TV.)

Q: How do I get your Channels or check out your TV-APPS?
A: Visit https://blog.martianpoop.com/tv-apps/ (Links on this page point to Roku, Amazon, and Googleplay.) See Rules below for direct links to our channels.

SCOPE OF THE FEST...
The Metro TV & Film Awards are International and support most every type of content from across the globe. However, we accept only ENGLISH SPEAKING (DIALOG) submissions only. Subtitles will NOT meet our requirements.

A content's Release Window(s) is not a determining factor for consideration in the Festival. Metro aims to encourage filmmakers, rather than looking for methods of exclusion.

We aim to promote you, not knock you down!
NO CONTRACTS! NO EXCLUSIVES!

ABOUT THIS FEST!
We accept all ENGLISH SPEAKING (No Subtitles) genres and types, however to stream your content on our APPS/Channels, your submission must be family friendly. We do not place (every) film submission on (every) one of our channels. Some content is better for one channel and not another. For example, Documentaries do better on our "Art House Movies" channel, and Action films do better on our "TMN" channel.

(No nudity, graphic adult language...this is actually dictated on Youtube and Roku, so if you're content is "acceptable" for them, then it will typically work for us too.)

See the following Points 1-4 if you're interested in having your content streamed on our Connected TV Channels.

1.) Streamers, upload your content to www.Archive.org. We prefer Archive.org because it converts video to mp4 with a perfect encoder for streaming.

Note: We do not download from youtube. Also, we do NOT license, grant, or imply any rights to anyone to rebroadcast, or download your content from our TV-Channels. (Roku/Fire boxes encode video streams, so it's virtually IMPOSSIBLE to rip content.)

2.) Streamers, prepare a 1000w x 550h image to represent your work. Save it as a (.jpg) please. Please keep it under 100k.

3. Streamers, prepare a 1-2 sentence description of your film. You may INCLUDE your URL.

4. Streamers, you must own the content you submit and accept responsibility for all clearance, music-rights etc. You may stream your film for a ( minimum of 1 ) month. We do not claim any rights to your content.

5. LAST THING TO DO: Email your stuff from points 1-4 (don't forget your film-link) to Dean at metrofilmfestival@gmail.com

OTHER RULES & TERMS:

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Metro from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees, and costs of the court) which may be incurred by reason of any claim involving copyright, trademark, credits, publicity, screening, and loss of or damage to the content submitted.

FilmFreeway Rules & Terms are the official T.O.S for Metro and the related Streaming "Awards & Prizes."
