Set in the enchanting country of Switzerland International 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.
What sort of movies you make, whether you create complex dramas set in medieval times, prefer fast-paced action thrillers or make nothing but western shaky-cam romantic comedies, we want to hear your story and see your vision!
There aren't many rules to follow when participating at Switzerland International Film Festival, but the few we have are really important:
Rule number 1: The movie must be one of the following genres:
Note: We don't mind wether your film is animated or filmed, as long as it is good. Thus, you can submit your animation film as either a short or feature, depending on it's length.
Rule number 2: All non-English films (or other forms of media) must have English subtitles.
- All screenplays must be in English.
- The film production could be from any year.
Rule number 3: The movie must be made by you, and the director/creator/producer needs to have all rights associated with it, including the rights to all audio and the manuscript.
☆ Important: this year the Festival will be held with online screenings. But all prizes and awards remain the same. This decision was made due to the lack of support from sponsors. Because of this, we are giving all participants of the current season, free participation in the physical screenings next year, as well as taking the right to pay all expenses upon arrival.
