Because of funding limitations, GR is unable to cover the cost of travel to and from Philadelphia for artists. Also, we cannot afford to pay shipping costs for individual pieces. However, we are committed to doing what we can do work with artists regarding hardship situations, as well as helping artists from outside the area find a free place to stay when attending the festival.

Any artist who's work is accepted into GR will receive a festival pass, which grants you free admission into the festival, as well as any other festival related event.

Gender Reel is not responsible for any loss or damage to art work and/or films that are sent to us, and/or displayed at the festival itself.
