Hi all- Hope you are staying safe, doing well. A few updates in this post, sifting though festivals, some of which are getting back on schedule/in person, and some haven’t yet.
best of luck,

Slim Cinema Film Festival TBA
[DUE TO CONCERNS OVER NCOV19, OUR FESTIVAL IS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WE WILL STILL BE ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS AND WILL PROVIDE NOTICE ONCE WE GATHER MORE INFORMATION ON WHEN WE PLAN TO HOST SCVFF V – THANK YOU!] We are excited to announce another installment of Slim Cinema, NYC’s first and only vertical film festival. Our past events have showcased some of the most creative filmmakers and storytellers across the world to a packed house of over 600 attendees.  CREATOR CHALLENGE: Create a visual piece shot in Vertical Composition that tells a narrative. Content can be shot using your equipment of choice (i.e. SLR, red, smartphone, etc.), but aspect ratio must be 9:16 for any submissions to be considered. We want to challenge your creativity to tell an original narrative through vertical visual storytelling. Have fun with it – be creative with the new aspect ratio. Keep in mind the constraints the narrower vertical format may bring to your content – and discover how you can disrupt visual narratives through powerful storytelling.

FICIprox 9/30/20
The International Film Festival is a festival of teasers. We understand TEASER as an audiovisual piece up to two minutes long that works in advance of a film that has not yet been completed or is in the process of realization, offering fragmentary frame information and a technical demonstration and aesthetics of what later will be the movie.

Camera Zizanio 10/4/21
Camera Zizanio shows films created by children and young people under 20 years of age. However, Camera Zizanio is not a Festival. As our name states, it is a “Meeting”which we believe is more important for us to come together, see creations by young people, chat, have fun, make friends and plan for the future.

The 19th Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival will be held on 25 March – 3 April 2022. We are looking for creative documentaries which open a fresh perspective on the contemporary world, films which analyze it, making an important contribution to the discussion of human dignity, freedom and equality.
