Festival Rules

SWIFF fosters a safe space for audiences of all ages, including children. Below is a guide for what we do not allow in the film.

What we do not allow in the film:

  1. Any character consuming alcohol
  2. Suicidal thoughts or behavior
  3. Excessive mental distress
  4. Advocation for eating disorders
  5. Any strong profanity
  6. Extreme or excessive anger
  7. Graphic scenes such as blood
  8. Guns, explosives, or any weapons
  9. Any nudity
  10. Any sexually-related behavior
  11. Any hate speech of any kind
  12. Praise for any specific religion or religious figure

Note 1: The film must be in English or have English subtitles.

Note 2: Each of the topics listed is not allowed. However, if the film, for example, mentions the problems with suicidal thoughts and advocates to solve the issue, that is permissible. In other words, if the film educationally advocates against some of the disallowed topics, that is permissible.
