Now it's time to watch your Film on the Big Screen and let the Judging Begin. Check your City Info Page for Screening times even if you were late we'll still play your film.

IT'S A WRAP! - well, Almost...

Before 7pm Sunday you need to fill out your Online Wrapup Form.

Team Leaders were emailed their password on Friday about 3:20pm to access the form.
Here you can adjust your cast and crew lists, enter the actual Title of your film and add other info from the shoot.
WHY? Because this information is required for Judging, getting a listing on the Reviews Website and having your film Hosted in the screening room. (you can re-edit it multiple times until 7pm).

Enter your MD5 'File checksum' code on the Wrapup Form. This proves your submitted film existed before 7pm Sunday and is a valid entry.
Do this Before 7pm exactly as this is your Out Of Town finish line! See the Out Of Town Help Page for the full information about creating your code.

Help, I can't find my Password !

If you can't find your Wrapup password email, then it's been sent to an invalid address or rejected by your mail server. Try to have it re-sent to the Team Leader's email using the box on that page.

Don't worry, Your City Manager has it but be sure to include your TEAM NAME in an email and request it now, not sunday evening - they're gonna be busy about then.

Note: if you are NOT registered Out Of town you can still enter the MD5 code if you like. We may use this only if The entry on USB stick you PHYSICALLY handed in before 7pm has file issues.
