*PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING FOR DOCUMENTARY THEATRICAL MOTION PICTURE SUBMISSIONS ONLY:

Synopses and Screeners: September 1, 2017 is the deadline to submit: (i) the required short synopsis of the motion picture to paralegal@producersguild.org (100-word limit); and (ii) the password-protected digital screener link or 25 DVD screeners. A late fee of $100.00 will be separately assessed for any screeners that are submitted between the dates of September 2, 2017 and September 15, 2017. If your motion picture has already been released, we encourage you to submit your link or screeners immediately.

Digital Screener Link:

If you choose to send a digital screener link, please include the link and password on the Notice of Producing Credits Form and be aware of the following formatting preferences and limitations on liability:

INFORMATION FOR DIGITAL SCREENERS:
  • The PGA does not have an infrastructure for providing hosting, streaming, or digital rights management for digital screeners. If you choose to send a digital screener (in lieu of DVD screeners), you are responsible for providing a link where the film may be viewed.
  • Ideally, the link should be password-protected, in accordance with best-practices for password strength, with a password that is active from the time you submit the link to the PGA through November 21, 2017.
  • We would prefer that the film be streamable, as opposed to downloadable, for ease of viewing.
  • Digital screeners may not include any additional print or moving image material, such as information about the making of the project.
LIMITATION ON LIABILITY: The digital screener link that you provide will be forwarded via email to members of the Documentary Nomination Panel. YOU MUST DO ALL THAT IS NECESSARY TO PROPERLY PROTECT THE MOTION PICTURE (E.G. ENCRYPTION, PASSWORD PROTECTION). THE PGA IS NOT LIABLE AND DOES NOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SECURITY AND/OR PRIVACY OF THE DIGITAL SCREENER LINK THAT IS SUBMITTED.

DVD Screeners:

If you would prefer to send DVD screeners, they must be in NTSC format with only the motion picture’s name and running time (and the name of the director, if already printed) on the cover of the DVDs. Please send the DVDs to:
