The organizer of the APOX film festival is the Relive Association of Veli Lošinj.

The APOX Festival presents documentaries that present current topics in an innovative and
new way in the world and in certain areas of culture, people’s lives, poverty, and the film
language and the media itself. It covers all independent international and domestic production.
Promotes expressive authoring concepts, thematic, conceptual and aesthetic steps.




Films and videos corresponding to the Festival’s profile mentioned in the About Festival
section may be submitted for the Competition Program and will be completed after January 1,
2019 for up to 90 minutes. Each author can submit no more than three papers. The Festival
does not pay fees for displaying the works selected for the Competition Program.

Applications received in one of two ways will be considered:
a) DVD
b) by link.


If the movie is submitted on DVD, it should be sent to the official festival address with the
application form filled and signed. DVDs do not return and remain in the festival archive. For
consignments from abroad, it should be indicated: "No commercial value, for cultural use".

The shipping cost is borne by the sender.


If the movie is submitted via the link, the application form is filled in but does not need to be
mailed. The entry form must include a valid internet address where the movie is located and,
if protected, a watch password and an option for downloading the movie should be provided.
The film must be available at the link by October 5, 2020. The festival guarantees that it will
use the downloaded file for pre-selection only.

If the movie contains text in any language other than English, English subtitles are required.




The results of the selection will be announced on June 1, 2020 at www.apoxfest.com, and the
Festival will notify the contact person listed in the application form for submission of texts,
images and videos for print, internet and promotion.

The festival will NOT notify all authors of entries, but only authors whose work has been
selected for the Competition Program.




The display formats accepted by the Festival are: DCP, 35 mm and 16 mm. DCP must comply with DCI standards and must be provided without a KDM encryption key. The technical specifications for the projections will be submitted by the Festival at a later date, upon selection of the work for the Competition Program. An agreed projection copy (with subtitles in English if the work has text) must be submitted
no later than September 1, 2020, to the Festival Office at: Zadbone 16, 51551 Veli Losinj, Croatia.

The festival has the right to refuse a copy of poor technical quality that could cause problems during the screening. In case the Festival requests the submission of a new projection copy, the cost of producing and sending it shall be borne by the sender.




The sender is obliged to inform the Festival of the manner and date of submission of the copy for display. For consignments from abroad, the “No commercial value, cultural use only” must be prominently displayed; and shipments arriving by courier services outside the European Union (DHL, FedEx, UPS, etc.) must be delivered to a PRO FORMA account with a content value of $ 20 or $ 20.

All projection copies will be returned within two weeks of the end of the Festival to a
previously agreed address. In the event of late or incomplete notification of the address, the Festival is not responsible for any difficulties that could result. The festival incurs the cost of sending a copy for display in ONE direction only, without exception.




The festival organizes a video library for accredited professionals and guests. The pre- selection copy of the film is automatically included in the video library unless otherwise indicated in the entry form. The Festival can be used for applied films for the promotion of the Festival at home and abroad, as well as for photos and clips from films that do not exceed more than 10% of the total duration of the work. Films submitted to the Festival are included in the Short Base festival archive and are used exclusively for non-commercial and educational purposes.




1. One Debutant Prize: A member of the Relive Jury awards the debut film at the APOX Film Festival
2. Audience Award: Awarded to the movie that wins the highest number of audience votes. The organizer reserves the right to change the rules for the awarding of prizes.




The organizer will use the pre-selection DVD or file exclusively for cultural, educational and non-commercial purposes.

In case of damage to the copy for display in the festival term, the Festival will only
compensate for the physical value of the physical copy.

The Festival assumes no liability for copies lost in transit unless the loss has occurred under its responsibility.

All complaints will be considered within 30 days of the copy being returned to the sender.




Anything not included in the ordinance will be considered by the organization of the Festival in accordance with the general rules of international documentary film festivals. In the case of litigation, the Rijeka Municipal Court has jurisdiction.
