Here, you'll find a list of frequently asked questions about MOPH.
When will I have to complete a W-9?
On the day of the event, if your content is chosen to appear in MOPH, we'll confirm your (the
payee's) legal name, permanent address and social security number (SSN) or employer identification number
(EIN), so you can receive a check after it's ended. We'll prepare a paper document for you to complete at
the festival, but if you choose to not appear, we'll email it to you. If your pay is equal or greater than what the
state considers taxable miscellaneous income--in Washington, this is $600--we'll send you a 1099-MISC, which the IRS
requires you and us to file. We need the information from the W-9 to prepare the 1099-MISC and will not pay you without it.
Incidentally, we also plan to share a portion of revenue from distribution sales once we reach that stage, which may occur
after MOPH's first or second year.
Is there a deadline by which to submit content?
Yes. Our anticipated deadline is April 30, 2017--although we might shorten this if we receive enough content. We plan
to send emails to the creatives whose work was selected [to appear in MOPH] by June 30, 2017. The day of the
festival should take place in July 2017.
Can I submit more than one movie/film?
Yes, you may submit as many videos as you want. Just be aware that, if you submit too many projects at once, it may
take us longer than 72 hours to review them all and respond to you.
The content on this page is effective as of Tuesday, July 26, 2016.
Will I lose the rights to my work?
Absolutely not. At no point during our handling of your content (evaluation or otherwise) will you lose the
rights to your work. If your movie(s) is chosen [to be exhibited], before the festival, we'll
ask you to sign a release, permitting us to display your content in exchange for a royalty, which will be a share of the
aforementioned 50% in sales. (This SHARE depends on the number of movies scheduled to appear, which we'll have
determined before sending out the releases).
