The 9h International queer film festival “Merlinka” will be taking place from 7-13 December 2017 in Main Hall of Dom omladine Beograda (Youth Center of Belgrade) – Belgrade, Serbia.

The main competition program of the festival will present only short queer films from all over the world produced in 2016 and 2017 (with possible exceptions). The films will be competing for Dorothy’s Slipper Award and money prize of 1000$. The festival’s main program will be accompanied by three side programs: Queer documentaries, Queer Featured films and Retrospective. The main focus of this year’s festival will be the force that motivates LGBT people to continuously work on improving lives of other LGBT people through politics, activism, art, media…, but this is not mandatory for official selection.

We invite film authors, as well as film arts students, to submit their films. The content of films submitted should be compatible with the festival’s framework (must be LGBTIQ-themed). Submission deadline is September 1, 2017. The application form is attached
