up-and-coming Int. Film Festival Hannover

Application for international films from all countries except Germany

up-and-coming Int. Film Festival Hannover is an international competition for young film makers. It takes place every two years (odd years) in Hannover, targeting young people up to the age of 27. This target group has massive potential for creative talent; talent just waiting to be discovered and cultivated. The u-a-c festival initiates support for these young ambitious artists while they are still in this highly motivated and enthusiastic age group.

The festival intends to present works which are imaginative, unusual, humorous, provocative and unconventional. We also welcome the results of first-time work in these media. The selection criteria do not emphasize technical perfection but originality, autonomy of the concept and how the concept has been translated into film. A preview copy must be submitted with the entry form, including materials for the festival catalog (text and photos), to be received in Hannover no later than 01 September 2015.
