From now on and until 1 May 2022,
we invite filmmakers from all around the world to submit their work to us. We are looking for films that respond to our programmatic line of relating to people‘s environments, addressing the use of resources and telling stories of coming and going, staying and shaping one‘s surroundings. Landscapes, regions and places should be seen as players in the game of human life.
A selection team of twelve will review your submissions, assess their suitability under our guidelines and compile a festival programme for the following international competitions:
Short Documentary (up to 45 min)
Short Feature Film (up to 30 min)
Animated Film (up to 30 min)
In each of these three competitions we offer an audience award including a remuneration of €2,000.
Our fourth competition will be held in the category of
Long Documentary (longer than 45 min)
and will include only submissions invited by our team. Speculative applications must be accompanied by an exposé sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 April. The audience award in this category, including €4,000 in prize money, will be donated by the Brandenburg State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Energy.
In addition, our selection team will nominate four to eight candidates from all categories for the special jury award DER STACHEL. The award is targeted at the most interesting contribution to the ongoing discussion on sustainability and includes prize money of €2,000, donated by Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development.
