Düsseldorf Filmfest Call for Entries

Düsseldorf Filmfest Call for Entries

To all young filmmakers, for the 15th time the Filmfest Düsseldorf gives a chance to your films! A thorough selection of films will become part of the Filmfest Düsseldorf program and will be shown to a competent jury and our visitors from 15th to 17th of November 2017. On the third and final day of the festival, the most interesting/unusual/innovative or, to put it simply, best films will be awarded with two audience awards (750€ each) and one over-all jury prize (1000€). The festival is organized by a group of students of the Institute for Media and Cultural Studies at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Düsseldorf, Germany.

There is no limitation in genre, instead we put a focus on newcomer and young talent support. To participate, please make sure that your work meets all necessary criteria. These are the most important ones:

  • The running time must not exceed 30 minutes and must not go below 3 minutes (both excluding closing credits).
  • You may not have published more than four films before the one you are sending in (private projects are not included).
  • The film must not have been completed before January 1st 2015.

Closing date for submissions is August 31st, 2017.
(No Late Deadline this year!)
