Hey. This looks awesome. Do you guys know if it's within 48hours rules to do a re-edit of this year's entry for another film fest? I've seen it suggested to some teams in the reviews by managers so I'm guessing its fine. We have a funny wee Zombie film that I'd love to do an extended cut of for this festival.

Hey Clayton - yes totally allowed. In fact last year's National Winner is about to premiere an extended cut at the NZIFF: https://www.nziff.co.nz/2018/auckland/eight-uneasy-pieces/

So go for it.

The rules used to have you sign over copyright of any entered short to the comp, but that hasn't been the case for several years, now the comp gets a non-exclusive perpetual right to use the short, but they don't get ownership. Was a very positive change and means you can do what you like because you own your short.

Thanks Mike, That just how the webpage offered the fee. It may have changed since but its a worldwide website and thats how they do the fees. I know pain in the butt but sometime have to fold to the powers that be.
