Festival start: 03 February 2022      Festival end: 06 February 2022

Final Girls Berlin Film Festival showcases horror cinema that’s directed, written, or produced by women*. We are holding the sixth edition of FGBFF from February 3-6 2022 in Berlin. We are looking for horror films (as well as films with horror elements or films that pay homage to horror), of all lengths. We are also extra excited if female filmmakers wish to visit the festival in order to participate in panels, or give talks or workshops on a particular aspect of horror cinema. We are committed to creating space for female voices and visions, whether monstrous, heroic, or some messy combination of the two, in the horror genre.

Short film submissions are eligible for an Audience Award. Ballots will be distributed and collected at screenings of each shorts program.

Final Girls Berlin accepts submissions of both short and feature-length films, as well as films that don't fit neatly in either of those formats.

All submitted films must be written, directed, or produced by women, trans, or non-binary filmmakers.

All submitted films must be considered horror, or at least have horror elements.

You may submit films regardless of prior screening status or year of completion.

Preferred formats: mp4 with aac sound codec, blu-ray discs; DCP

Promo materials such as posters, t-shirts, etc. are very welcome and will be distributed to the audience at the festival.

Once a film has been accepted into the official festival program it can no longer be withdrawn.

The filmmaker grants permission to FGBFF to screen the film at the advertised festival as well as future FGBFF events (unless indicated otherwise in a cover letter with the submission form).

The filmmaker agrees that the festival can use up to 5 stills from the movie for promotional purposes.
