Well yes that's a part of it, except it is controlled
centralised and comes with rules.

I think another part of it is online billing and
payment for fees etc.

I would have thought that formats would be a fairly
basic question for most festivals. I've not come
across a submission form that didn't ask this.

Also as I say if there are additional weird questions
specific to the festival, they could be included on a
seperate sheet, it would still mean less paperwork for
the filmmaker.

It could be an option like withoutabox, whether you
accept ssf's or not, or you could accept ssf's as the
usual submission form for the festival. It would be up
to festivals.

I think it could be done. Maybe not THAT difficult
either, it just depends on whether people are
interested in it or not.
