Thank you for submitting your film to the SIMOOLI FILM FEST!



Simooli Film Fest is a friendly non-competitive challenge inviting all players of The Sims franchise to write, film & edit a short machinima using the guidelines and criteria for each #SimooliFilmFest challenge. It's time to put on your Director's cap!

Premiere / Screening

All entries will be premiere live, on stream, at at a designated time. By entering, you agree to have your machinima broadcasted publicly, and acknowledge that all rules and criteria have been followed.

All machinima submissions should primarily utilize The Sims franchise, including (but not limited to) The Sims 1, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, and The Sims 4. Other simulation games (ie; Sim City, Cities: Skylines, Minecraft) may only be used for supporting material such as B-roll, or composites.

In-Game Camera & Production Tools

You may manipulate the in-game video capture camera settings to better serve you (ie; VideoCamera.ini and Camera.ini files). More details on how to accomplish this can be found here: How to Use The Cinematic Camera in TS4

Additionally, you may use reshades, T.O.O.L., MCCC, or any other mods that will help you tell your story.
