Definitions

References to “we”, ”our”, ”us” means Diorama Room, LLC. Tune in to Green and “series” means the Tune in to Green short film series and/or the Tune in to Green Vimeo-on-Demand series. “Film” can mean video or film transferred to video. “You” and “your” means the person submitting the film.

 

These are the terms and conditions filmmakers will be required to agree to before submitting their work to Tune in to Green using our submission form:

Filmmaker Qualifications

Professional, semi-pro, and novice video makers are welcome to submit their works.

By applying to this series, you acknowledge that you, and all the contributors to the project, are of legal adult age in their place of residence. Parental permission will be considered if the parent emails us to discuss and if the parent completes the submission form.

Run Times and Deadline

We are accepting videos up to five minutes long, including credits.

It is uncertain what each show’s running time will be, but the goal is 45-90 minutes. It is dependent on the submissions chosen before the deadline. If there is not at least 45-minutes of material before that date, the deadline will be extended.

The deadline to enter your film for the fifth exhibition is October 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM Central Standard Time.

Availability to the Public

Again, the date that each exhibition is available to the public for streaming depends on when we receive enough suitable submissions. Once a decision has been made for the release date, all entrants will be informed at least a week in advance. An announcement will also be posted on our website and social media pages on Instagram @DioramaRoomArts and on Facebook as https://fb.me/dioramaroom.natureart.

The target launch date for the fifth exhibition is November 20, 2021.

Mediums

The type of camera filmed with can include SLR, digital video, or cell phone camera set to Full HD, shot at 1920×1080. No footage shot in 4K or higher please. It can also include hand drawn, mixed media, or digitally created imagery.

Content

When completing our film submission and contact forms or using our website you agree that:

  • you will not send unauthorized commercial communications (spam).
  • you will not upload viruses or other malicious code.
  • you will not do anything that could be seen as an attack on this website, our Vimeo-on-demand page, or our series.
  • you will not submit films that contain hate speech, threats, violence, attempts to incite violence, pornography, nudity, alcohol or drug use, or profanity.
  • you will not send messages that bully, intimidate, or harass the Diorama Room, LLC / Tune in to Green operators.

Submission and Viewing Fees

In lieu of a submission fee, to help cover operating costs of the series, we do ask that accepted videomakers who choose to watch the exhibition, pay the 72-hour streaming rental price of USD $7 through Vimeo.com/ondemand/tuneintogreenIf viewers are paying in a currency other than USD, the equivalent to the above pricing will be displayed in their local currency including, VAT or GST, where those taxes are collected. Unfortunately, Vimeo does not accept currency from every country, so please keep this in mind when deciding whether or not you want to submit a film. To see the list of currencies accepted at this time, visit the Vimeo How to rent & buy webpageThese fee structures are subject to change in the future. 

Our goal is to include a diverse, international body of work and audience. However, due to complicated tax and accounting requirements, we are not able to pay filmmakers a stipend or a portion of the Vimeo-on-Demand Tune in to Green streaming or downloading fees at this time.

Selection Process

If your short is not selected for the current Tune in to Green compilation, it should not necessarily be assumed to be a rejection. The best curation may simply warrant other videos be shown together instead.

All submitted videos may be considered for a future exhibition. If that is the case, we will contact you beforehand to request your permission. 

Promotional Rights

By submitting a video to Tune in to Green you, the filmmaker(s), grant Diorama Room, LLC a perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to offer their film as part of the Tune in to Green series for approximately three months on https://vimeo.com/ondemand/tuneintogreen, at which point the next episode will be aired.

In addition, you, the filmmaker(s), grant Diorama Room, LLC a perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to use all makers’ names associated with the film; their country of residence; still images captured from your video; and/or a 3-10 second clip captured from your video to be used in a trailer; and descriptions of your project, for promoting the series before and after your full video is shown.

Ownership Rights

Diorama Room, LLC will not claim ownership or copyright of any submissions. The filmmaker(s) will retain ownership of their film at all times.

By submitting a film to Tune in to Green, the filmmaker(s) agree that the work is of their own making. It does not contain any visual or audio material that is copywritten by anyone other than themselves. The names and contact information for all collaborators, who have agreed for their material to be included in the project being submitted, must be entered in our submission form. They must also be named in the film’s credits.

In addition, the filmmaker(s) agree to obtain a clearance form for any music included that is not of their own making, unless it is royalty-free; a crew member contract from those individuals involved in the making of the film stating that they are aware the film will be submitted to an online channel; a release form from any talent, including extras, and identifiable private property owners; and any others whose consent is required, before submitting the film. We will ask for these forms to be submitted when it is obvious from the submission that they are required, or if we receive a complaint from parties claiming illegal usage in a film on our channel.

Entry Liability

If it is reported to us, and we find that, the above ownership rights are violated, we will remove your material from our program. By submitting a video to the Tune in to Green short film series, the filmmaker(s) agree(s) to hold the series and its operating company, Diorama Room, LLC, harmless from any and all claims of liability resulting from entry. The filmmaker(s) will indemnify the series and its operating company against any and all claims, demands, damages, expenses (including legal fees), proceedings, and/or losses, brought on by the filmmaker or a third party, resulting from the screening of their submitted film on our Vimeo-on-Demand page, or using stills or clips from the submitted film, for promotional purposes on our website.

Provisions to Users Outside of the United States

By submitting your personal information through our web forms, you agree to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.
