The Faludi Film and Media announces its 25th thematic international film festival and the related photo competition. This year’s motto is GIFT.

This year’s theme is "Gift". The gift is not a reward, not compensation: it is much more of a sacrifice. When we give a gift, it is not from our surplus. If there is no commitment and self-denial in it, there is no value to it. The value is that we give what we are, who we are as a gift to the other person, resulting in both of us overcoming ourselves. It makes it clear that everything is and can be a gift, that there is no such thing that ’I deserve it’. It is a gift to push the man in the wheelchair out into the sunlight, to pack an aid package for those in need, to take the children to the zoo. Moreover, it is also a gift to take a breath, to breathe, to be able to walk, to raise our feet and hands, to see with our eyes, to heal and accept the unchangeable - the beating of the heart, the work of the blood vessels, these are all gifts. Giving a gift is a gift in itself.

Competitors are invited to process this theme in the form of a film or photo in accordance with the terms and conditions of the festival. We are looking for professionally demanding elaborated works that are suitable for creating a forum, in the language of pictures, for a dialogue between different viewpoints and opinions.

The submissions are evaluated by international juries.

Deadline for entry : 10 October 2022
Date of the festival: 16-19 November 2022

The films will be evaluated by a professional jury. The works selected by the pre-jury for competition will be presented at open screenings in the presence of the creators, the audience and the jury. The jury gives prizes (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) in three categories: short feature film, experimental film and documentary, and offers special prizes as well. The jury will evaluate the works of film university students in a separate category.

The best of the photos based on the decision of the pre-jury will be exhibited. The prizes will be handed over at the prize-giving ceremony of the film festival.

The projects of independent filmmakers, students pursuing film and visual arts studies, TV film directors, independent creative communities are all welcome.

The films will be evaluated by a professional jury. Usually the works selected by the pre-jury for competition will be presented at open screenings in the presence of the creators, the audience and the jury, followed by an open evaluation. The projects not selected for competition will be presented in the framework of an information program depending on the time available.

The international jury gives prizes in different categories: short feature film, experimental film and documentary, and offers special prizes as well. The jury will evaluate the works of film university students in a separate category. The jury reserves the right to move films from one category to another and determine the timeframe of the competition and information program.

In addition there will be an international ecumenical jury and student juries evaluating the projects.
