Visions du Réel 1/6/15
*for films finished after September 2014*** fee
The festival is committed to presenting works which, through their formal and aesthetic choices, give personal and original portrayals and descriptions of past and present realities of the world. The festival seeks to promote the widest possible spectrum: experimental films, essays, personal diaries, family films, films on current affairs and social issues, historical investigations, and films with classic or fragmented narrative approaches. Cinéma du Réel is open to different genres, integrates stylistic variations and montages, and is inspired by “cinéma direct” as well as fictional-style narratives. DVD or password protected vimeo link.
MediaWave International Film Festival 01/10/15
“ANOTHER CONNECTION” expects the applications of artists, whose individual way of creation is independent of fashion streams; for whom technique is the means not the purpose; who attempt to create an individual film code set – whether they live in a minority group or in a less exposed part of the world. We want a festival where an abundance of original, new and particular views will play a major role instead of exotic productions and tricks; where artists with different ways of thinking and free thoughts will come together. Submission online or by dvd.
