Call for entries
Deadline 31 March 2008
MUNICH INTERNATIONAL is excited to announce the call for entries for this year’s short film festival, which takes place directly prior to the “big” Munich Filmfest. Starting on Thursday, June 12 through Wednesday, June 18, 2008, the festival will showcase the world’s best contemporary short films each night at the tradition-steeped Gloria Filmpalast in the heart of the Bavarian capitol.
Submissions are open to non-German language films of all genres (fiction, animation, documentary, experimental, music video or other) from any nation of the world. Films must not have been shown in Bavaria at a festival, in a theatre or on television before, and must not exceed a length of 15 minutes. All non-English films must have English subtitles. The festival prefers to screen 35mm prints. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2008, and we kindly ask that you send your film in as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the deadline. Please check the complete submission requirements at http://www.muc-intl.de
To submit a film, please register at Reelport – http://www.reelport.com/index.php?id=52
After registering, you will be guided through the necessary steps, from the filling of simple data requests to the automatic upload of a video file. You may also send a DVD preview copy to the address mentioned on the Reelport website. Please do not send your preview copy directly to the festival.
The festival is staged by the Munich Filmwerkstatt, which is an association of young directors, producers and other members of the filmmaking community who support each other’s films and careers, and CommClub Munich. Under the motto “Collecting knowledge and strengthening personal networking”, CommClub Munich is dedicated to the media industry in Munich and to bringing people from various branches together by offering a wide range of events and meetings focusing on information, networking and fun. The festival takes place in cooperation with Mathäser and is presented by Abendzeitung. Global transportation of the screening prints is provided by Interkep, and the festival’s prize, film stock for the next project of the winning director, is kindly contributed by Kodak. The MUNICH INTERNATIONAL short film festival would not exist without the support of these generous sponsors.
Please share this information with anyone who may wish to submit a film. Thanks in advance for your interest and collaboration. We are looking forward to meeting you in Munich in June 2008!
