  2. All entries must be no longer than 10 minutes in length, including titles and credits.
  3. All entries MUST be submitted by midnight Saturday night, and must be submitted in a format that can be played by the movie room equipment. Acceptable formats are DVD, MPG, AVI, OGG, MOV and MKV. Most codecs are accepted. If you are unsure, please submit a sample for the movie room to experiment on so that we can determine if there will be any difficulties. All movies must be viewable by a mixed audience. If you wouldn't show it to your Mom, we may not show it at ApolloCon.

  8. All production and post-production work must also occur at ApolloCon (somewhere in the hotel is fine). All movies will be of a science fiction, horror or fantasy theme.
  9. Props and scripts may be brought to the conference for use in the production.
