International Festival

Short film festival


It is a party that combines different languages, platforms and materials that revolve around audiovisual and cinematographic language. It calls for works from all backgrounds, emphasizing urban, rural and community-based community productions produced by Latin American peoples who are in search of their own image and propose different perspectives that do not find a space in the commercial distribution network.

The competition conditions the creator to submit to the taste of a jury, limiting in many cases the creative options of filmmakers whose works do not respond to the logic of the film industry; So we propose a non-competitive festival where the objective, rather than winning an award or recognition, is to share the experience of the realization itself, the search for the image and the reality that it reflects.

An open, plural, democratic party, which invites all sovereign achievements to join in dreaming and being part of the force that constitutes the different, critical, silenced looks. Inviting national and international allies to add as many voices to that search for their own image and audiovisual sovereignty.

Works made in neighborhoods and community cinema by more people making audiovisual and less stars of the film industry. Decentralized projection sites, to bring the audiovisual to where people are and (re) take the street for public and free cultural action, for love, not for business. A meeting, production, reflection and discussion space, on topics that concern us and that are embodied in the films that are screened and in the workshops that take place during the week, because we celebrate the audiovisual as a weapon of struggle for our free expression.

We welcome you to the Third Edition of Prague Film Awards - a two-day celebration of quality independent filmmaking, awards, and industry events in front of a live audience of film critics, enthusiasts and producers. Join us for two memorable nights of screenings, networking and red-carpet treatment.

Prague Film Awards, now in its second edition, was born out of a desire to create a welcoming space where international cinema and Czech filmmaking can meet and enrich each other. After our hugely successful, sold-out first edition in January 2018 and Janaury 2019, we will be returning to Kino Atlas in Prague, January 2020.

We believe quality filmmaking should be celebrated and awarded, regardless of the budget. This is why our dedicated team of international programmers focus on creating the most diverse screening selection. Why our nominated filmmakers are guests of honor. Why seeing and hearing the audience react to your cinematic work is just one of the many ways your work is being rewarded.

We are passionate about supporting up-and-coming directors, producers and actors, and providing them with worthwhile, memorable screening experiences. These include Q&As with filmmakers, industry roundtables, and audience awards.

▶ We are accepting submissions for a number of categories and are open to all languages, as long as films in a language other than English are subtitled in English. All submissions must come through Festhome ◀

Prague Film Awards is run in association with Close:Up, a collection of international film festivals supporting indie filmmaking. By establishing a working network among filmmakers, producers and marketing professionals, we share one common goal: to forge productive and lasting relationships between independent filmmakers and audiences.

We are now open for submissions for our 2020 event!

Last year there was a Focus on Asia, with shorts from different country of the continent. From 2015 to 2019 the festival screened international and national premieres, from the major festivals (Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, Clermont-Ferrand) and winners of the most important national and international awards (Oscar, David, Cesar, Goya).
The festival annually hosts key figures from the show business and organizes collateral events such as book presentations, workshops dedicated to teenagers and photography exhibitions.

The Oz International Film Festival has been conceived to celebrate the very best of Australian and International independent film making. At a time when movies are becoming more and more programmed by market research, demographics and comic books and computer game sales, is has never been more important to discover and foster new brave independent and adventurous visionaries dealing with life in the modern world, be it in a serious thought provoking style or in a satirist humorous way.

It also is of no importance whether your political bend is either left wing or right wing or non-political, your film will be judged on only one criteria – the quality of the work. Art should be open minded and stimulate healthy debate and thought. Proudly, we have no other restrictions on your work. This includes your works premier status, it's age and/or whether your work has been made available online.

Our categories include Australian Feature Film, Australian Short Film, International Feature, International Short, Documentary, Australian Indigenous Work and Music Video.

There will also be a Retrospective of Important Australian Seminal Movies which will include a Q&A with the original filmmakers and several workshops.

We are also proud to present a series of screenings of movies made by or about Australian indigenous people.

We look forward to your participation as either filmmakers, actors, musicians, industry judges, sponsors and theatre venues.

ASSERTING WOMEN'S RIGHTS is a project that has emerged from the Malaga Festival, Mabel Lozano (documentary filmmaker and collaborator of the Festival), and the Equal Opportunities Area of Malaga City Council as a protest tool. This section is created with the aim of exploring and dealing with issues that contribute to social awareness of women's rights each year.

This section of the Malaga Festival was born in 2008, this being its 13th edition. The project is conceived with a double purpose: to inform about the injustices that women still suffer in this century for the mere fact of being women, and to encourage and support the cinematographic work created by women.
