The categories of the submitted work are story, documentary, animation, 2-D photography, experimental production, smartphone production, and others.

The candidates of the First MIUVEF are all college students, undergraduates, graduates, doctoral students, students that are graduated within the past five years, or young professionals without a school certificate. The members of the jury are influential individuals in the industry from Japan, China, the US, Europe, and other countries and regions.

The work submitted helps us foresee the future of visual media, as well as the possibilities this form of art could bring to the world in this multimedia era.
