Switzerland International
Film Festival

2017

15 – 18 September

Especially for filmmakers from around the world!

ABOUT

Set in the enchanting country of Switzerland, Online Film Festival for filmmakers. No matter if you have never made a movie before, but have a burning wish to do so, or you have already made hundreds; this is the festival for you. 

   We don't judge what sort of movies you make; whether you create complex dramas set in medieval times, prefer fast-paced action thrillers or make nothing but spaghetti western shaky-cam romantic comedies inspired by the works of Ed Wood; we want to hear your story and see your vision! 

   Your submission can be new or old, long or short; everything we require is that you are proud of what you made!
