Filmfestival Münster 2019 | Call for Entries

Published on

The 18th edition of the Filmfestival Münster takes place from 18-22 September 2019 at the Schloßtheater Münster. The festival is inviting entries for the two central competitions. For the first time this year, the European Feature Film Competition is exclusively open for debut films. The traditional short film competition, which has been at the heart of the festival for 38 years, will be extended this year for the first time to productions from all over Europe. The deadline for both competitions is 1 June 2019.

European Feature Film Competition for Debut Films
In the European Feature Film Competition, eight fictional feature films from European production will be invited. The films selected will give a new impetus to European cinema and will be distinguished by their exceptional narrative or visual language. Young filmmakers are invited to Münster to present their first film produced for theatrical release. An international jury will award a prize for the best directing (endowed with 5,000 euros).

European Short Film Competition
For the first time, this competition will be open to the whole of Europe. All genres, themes and forms of expression are welcome - narrative, documentary, animated, experimental, even music videos - the competition thus paints a vivid picture of the current short film scene in Europe. Both a jury and the audience select their favourites, which are awarded prizes for young talent.

Only submissions via FilmFreeway will be accepted for the short film competition:

Please carefully read the submission guidelines before submitting your film.
