CINEMAFORUM and American Film Festival open short films submissions

CINEMAFORUM and American Film Festival open short films submissions

CINEMAFORUM – International Short Film Forum and American Film Festival in Wrocław open short films submissions. The qualified films will be screened during American Shorts section of both festivals.

Every year in the United States a lot of great shorts are created that do not reach the Polish audience. That is why both festivals have once again decided to present the original selection of the best among them during a special section – American Shorts.

Organized by the FILMFORUM Association, CINEMAFORUM has been running for 19 years and is one of the oldest and most established Polish festivals devoted to short cinema. Every year it presents a wide variety of the best short films from all over the world and hosts many Polish and international guests from different branches of audiovisual industry.

We are very glad to announce a call for entries for the programme – to be presented during both festivals: in Warsaw and in Wroclaw in November 2021.

Please send your short work (running time up to 40 min.) through the online form.

The submissions are free of charge. Deadline is 1st August 2021.

Here are rules and regulations:

Programmers of both Cinemaforum and American Film Festival will make a selection of diverse films for the program, which will be 90-120 minutes long. We mostly welcome fiction shorts, but animations and experimental pieces are also eligible.

The festival is organized by the FILMFORUM Association.

The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Fund for the Promotion of Culture and from the funds of the Capital City of Warsaw.

The program partner of the event is American Film Festival.
