Is it the same competition at each festival?
• There will be some who submit as part of the FAME FACTOR Ticket and many others who submit to one festival exclusively. Every festival will have a
unique population of submissions and Official Selections. Nominations and Awards in one festival, in no way equates to the same results in other
GO Independent Festivals.
• Additionally, we will have different judges mixed with every festival. No two festivals will be exactly the same. Every festival will have a different mix of submissions and judges. Only a certain percentage will be on the FAME FACTOR TICKET. While it is a competition, we never lose sight of our mission to support, promote and educate our artists. We do our best to make each festival unique to maintain legitimacy for all who participate.
If our submission gets into one of the GO Film Festivals, is it automatically accepted into the NOVA Fest?
• If your submission is accepted into one (1) GO Film Festival or The NOVA Fest, your submission is eligible for the FAME FACTOR TICKET, which guarantees acceptance into all the GO Film Festivals. The NOVA Fest is separate from the network of GO Festivals and submissions can only be accepted through the traditional process. The submission fee, is waived for The NOVA Fest, however, if your submission is participating in the FAME FACTOR TICKET.
