code of conduct

  • By participating to a Micro Short Films (MSF) project, I agree to:
  • Take on my share of production management tasks, understanding that a collective effort is necessary for the success of the project.

  • Acknowledge the networking component as a cornerstone of MSF and facilitate a positive networking experience for myself and others without hindrance.

  • Commit to Active Participation, striving to attend all group meetings whenever possible, even during phases where my specific role may not be directly involved. This fosters a collaborative and engaged group dynamic.

  • Recognize this project as low/no-budget, and while no one should be pressured to contribute financially, external funding avenues are encouraged. Creative solutions that require no budget are also welcomed.

  • Assign a liaison officer within my group, preferably a producer or director, to coordinate with MSF.

  • Uphold the ethos of MSF, committing to work collaboratively and respectfully within my assigned group.

  • Optimize the use of available resources, seeking no-budget solutions whenever feasible.

  • Be respectful of the values and beliefs of other group members, pledging to work collaboratively and equitably.

  • Communicate my availability clearly and update my group should it change.

  • Adhere to the project’s requirements, including attendance at meetings and being reachable via selected communication platforms.

  • Prohibit any form of abuse, harassment, or intimidation, adhering to a zero-tolerance policy against such behaviors.

  • Eschew all forms of discrimination, whether based on race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, sexual orientation, or national origin.

  • Treat everyone equally and fairly, abiding by a zero-tolerance approach to inequality.

  • Use appropriate and respectful language and behavior towards all group members.

  • Commit to completing the project unless there is a valid reason that prevents me from doing so.

  • Not expect people to work for free on subsequent projects outside of MSF.

  • Acknowledge that MSF is not a platform for the development of pre-existing work, like pre-written script drafts.
