All the presented film/videos do win PIGEON D’OR Awards from the festival, LIAFF only screens winners.
The Filmmaker understands and accepts that they do not participate in receiving any funds from the Box-office proceeds which are fully retained by the festival to help cover the overall cost of the festival presentation.
