LET’S CEE Film Festival is inviting filmmakers to apply for its annual Short Film Competition for 2018, themed: Together or Apart.
Eligible to participate are filmmakers up to the age of 35 from Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus region, Turkey and Austria.
Not only are two main prizes of 1,500 Euro waiting to be won, moreover, ten finalists will receive an invitation to participate in the second edition of the LET’S CEE Talent Academy in Vienna.
The “Together or Apart” competition theme may be manifested in the submitted material in various manners and methods. Interpersonal aspects, such as family and relationship dramas, trials and tribulations, moments of success and happiness or the joint overcoming of challenges can be taken into account just as well as social, political, juridical and/or cultural matters. In other words: everything is possible, as long as it touches on the topic and is done well.
Even though the Festival is limited to CEE, filmmakers of all ages and from all over the world are welcome as well to send in thematically fitting contributions. Due to the festival’s geographical focus on CEE though, these short films will not be included in the main Short Film Competition, but will very well have the chance to win the Audience Award in the Short Film category and be screened at the festival in the section Short Films | Out of Competition. Furthermore, cordially encouraged to apply are international makers of virtual reality films, 3D productions and avant-garde pieces – for all these genres the LET’S CEE Film Festival will offer a stage as well.
After the presentation of the participating productions at the festival, an international jury will decide on the winner of the competing short films and, thus, who will be awarded the main prize – 1,500 Euro and a Urania statuette – at the Awards Ceremony in the Urania Cinema on 20 April 2018. The remaining short films presented during the festival will have, without exception, the chance to win the 1,500 Euro Audience Award in the category Short Film.
The 6th LET’S CEE Film Festival is scheduled for 13 — 22 April, 2018 in Vienna, Graz and Villach.
