The Festival Director invites films to participate in the international Competition. The Director is advised by German and international professionals. Any film submitted for the Competition may be considered for the Panorama unless specifically instructed otherwise by the applicant.
The duly completed online entry form as well as the screening material for selection must reach the Festival by the deadline.
Formats accepted for selection are film prints, DVD and Blu-ray (region free / all regions). Please contact the programme organisation for DCP or other formats (additional charges may arise). If you apply for several sections and your submission format is DVD / Blu-ray, you are kindly requested to possibly send two screeners to our attention.
Films should be submitted for selection in their original language with English subtitles.
