Terms & Conditions
Frontstage Backstage films ltd (“us”, “we” or “our”) are asking people to submit videos for consideration to be included in a visual art film which will be created from submitted videos. The project title is “Your views” also known as (the “Film”).
The inclusion or not of any Video in the Film is entirely dependent on the artistic vision of the director of the Film (the “Director”). The decision of the Director is final. As such, the Directors artistic review will determine the videos which will be selected for inclusion in the Film.

Further information regarding the Film and the creation and submission of Videos for the Film is available on our Frequently Asked Questions page located on the project website under FAQ but such information does not form part of these Official Terms.
