The Seattle Film Office assumes no responsibility for lost, incomplete, misdirected, illegible or undelivered submissions.

Only submissions which are the original work of the participant are eligible, and the participant must have exclusive rights to all intellectual property associated with the submission as well as the consent of each natural person that is recognizable in the submission. By submitting a clip, participants agree to this and to the decisions of the Seattle Film Office, which will be final and binding in all respects. Submission of your clip is not a guarantee that it will be used.

If at any time the Seattle Film Office is unable to operate the video reel as planned (for example, due to financial or administrative difficulties, fraud or technical failure such as a computer virus/bug or other form of unauthorized intervention), the Seattle Film Office reserves the right to suspend, modify or terminate the use of the video reel.
