Film & Clip Submission Information


1 – Clips must be roughly 30 seconds long. Try and use a timescale between 25-35 seconds.

2 – We would like a different clip for each nomination you have. If you have 5 nominations and you send 1 clip that means on the night everyone will watch that same clip 5 times. To showcase your film best we would like to show different parts that are relevant to the category.

3 – We do not want the trailer. By all means send it to us and we will use it if possible on our Social Channels. It will not be used for the awards night DVD. If this is all you have and you have no time to cut the clips then we will accept it but ideally we would not use this. If you fall into Point 2 above with multiple nominations and must use a trailer, please try and send multiple trailers or a long one which we can edit down.

4 – When cutting the 30 second clips, please do not add your company name, film name, distributor name, selection laurel or any other information to the beginning or end of the clip. We will edit this off as we need to make every clip the same. Ideally we would like the clip only with no writing except subtitles where appropriate (see Point 5 below). This includes “For Consideration” or other such writing over the top of the film.

5 – Talking about Subtitles in Point 4, we are an English speaking Festival. We host events around the world but we are English speaking. If your film is not in English then please add English subtitles to the clips you send.

6 – We can deal with most video formats. We use a Mac and Adobe Premiere Pro. If we encounter a format we cannot use we will do our best to convert it. With this being said, please make it easier for us and send a format that is usable with our software.

7 – Please send us the highest definition possible. If we get a tiny file that looks alright on a screen but not great, imagine that blown up to an 8-foot screen. Don’t worry about size, HD is best.

8 – Please name the file in the following way:

Festival Name – Category Name – Film Name – Nominee Name

We get so many clips sent to us and it’s very each to lose track when we have a file called something like “” and when we play it there is no title. Please make it easier for us so we don’t have to contact you saying we don’t have the clips when we do, we just don’t know which one it is.

9 – To get the clips to us you can use any of the following:

Google Drive



Please send us the film in it’s entirety via the same methods as you send the clips. Ideally we would like to play the film via a computer. We can accommodate a Blu Ray or a DVD from any region however we would prefer the film digitally. From our experience this is the easiest and best way of screening your film.


St Tropez IFF 2014 Winners


Below are the winners from the night. We will have the winning laurels and our specially designed cubic zirconia rings with the festival insignia ready in a week and all official event pictures will be online within a couple of weeks. There was a slight hiccup in the delivery of the rings, so if your film was recognized in its category and you did not receive the winners package, please be patient.

Congratulations …

Thank you St. Tropez International Film Festival for recognizing the work of Alexis Raich. Alexis is so passionate about the characters she is fortunate enough to mold and puts her heart and soul into her work. She worked crazy hard, physically and mentally as Helen. You made Alexis proud in blessing her with this nomination. Thank you.

We are sooooooo very excited to have “Gaze of the Beholder” have it’s European premiere at the St. Tropez International Film Festival! The film was a labor of love over the course of 5+ years. In that time, we laughed, we grew and we were able to connect with so many people and prove how important and universal the topic of beauty and body is to many of us. Like Maya Angelou says in her “Human Family” poem, “We seek success in Finland, are born and die in Maine. In minor ways we differ, in major we’re the same. I note the obvious differences between each sort and type, but we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike. We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike.” Thanks again to all of the folks at the Festival International for accepting our film and for our award nominations! I look forward to meeting and celebrating my fellow filmmakers very soon!
