OPEN CALL FOR FILMS: 9th Student International Film Festival

Eligibility:

STIFF – Student International Film Festival is now calling on all student and debutant filmmakers to submit their films for the 9th festival edition which will take place from 24th to 27th of November 2022 in Rijeka, Croatia.

Works entering the competition program must be original, student-created films or debutant films of all genres: fiction, documentary, animation, and experimental films. All the works need to be up to 60 min in length and completed after the 1st of January 2020. 

The films must be in English or with English subtitles and must be submitted via FilmFreeway platform. The deadline for registration and delivery of materials is May 30th, 2022.

STIFF festival accepts films of all genres and themes, however, special attention will be given to the films corresponding to the festival topic which is “Play”. Through this topic, we aim to explore human activities that are not rooted in pragmatism. We are looking at the act of playing as a spontaneous and freeing activity. A world of possibility that has yet its own set of rules.

How much are we allowed to play in our everyday lives and who writes the rules? What are the games we play as adults – do they restrain or liberate us? Do we go around the rules as we make love, films, and as we make new encounters? What do these creations say about us? Our wish is to reaffirm the seriousness of play as a tool for learning about ourselves and the world, simultaneously prioritizing creativity and pleasure.

 

Prizes Details: 

The festival jury will award Best Fiction Film, Best Documentary, and Best Animated Film while our audiences will award one film of their choice. Special mentions might be given to the outstanding talents from the fields of directing, production, acting, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, production design, sound design and score composing.

Deadline: 
20/June/2022

Terre da Film Festival

Country:

Eligibility:

THEME

The historical period in which we live is inevitably leading us to ask ourselves again who we are and where we put ourselves in the world. In addition to asking ourselves who we are today, we must also ask ourselves what our relationship is with others and how to include them in our lives.

At its first edition, Terre da Film Festival focuses on the theme of the IDENTITY.

Identity as choice.
Identity as a mirror.
Identity as a departure or a new point of arrival.
Identity of a place or a dear event.
Identity as a condition of perpetual searching.

We select short films that speak of them in a broad sense. We want to find new expressions, visual experimentation of stories that interface with the theme of the research of an identity.

Mixed techniques, use of unconventional tools (smartphone, action cam, film...) will be highly appreciated. In general, we care about developing research on the medium being used.

We select short films of maximum 30 minutes. All types of language are allowed. We decided, for this first edition of TDFF, to select shorts films for a single uncategorized competition. We want to amaze our public and ourselves.

Prize Summary: 
Win up to 450 €
Prizes Details: 

The winner of the TDFF will receive 300 Euros and a gift from one of our sponsor.

The second place of the TDFF will receive 150 Euros and a gift from one of our sponsor.

The third place of the TDFF will receive a gift from one of our sponsor.

The first 8/10 films selected for the projection will be featured and presented in the program of TDFF during live screening events in the public spaces of the city.
