Objective

The programme of the One Take Film Festival will consist solely of films shot in one take, without any editing. A “take” is defined technically, as the footage made between turning the camera on and turning the camera off. The footage must not be edited in any way other than trimming at the beginning and the end.

The transition between the title/end credits and the film itself can be done by cross-fading, or the title/end credits can be displayed in any other way before and after the take the film is comprised of, but only on a neutral, still background.

Genres eligible for submission are fictional, documentary and experimental films, as well as commercial and music videos.

Prizes

Awarded film will be copied, or transferred to tape in telecine, at the expense of the organizer and stored in the archives of the One Take Film Festival.

The organizer guarantees that the copies will be used for non-commercial purposes only. DVD preview copies selected for the competition will also be stored in the archives of the One Take Film Festival. The organizer guarantees that these copies will also be used for non-commercial purposes only.
