Students‘ Platform: Call for entries closed!


Our fes­ti­vals’ stu­dents’ plat­form calls for first and final works such as doc­u­men­taries, fea­ture films and short films cov­er­ing inter- and socio­cul­tur­al issues. With our selec­tion we aim to give an insight into the diver­si­ty, cre­ativ­i­ty, and orig­i­nal­i­ty of emerg­ing film­mak­ers & visual anthro­pol­o­gists from all around the world - with no restric­tions on theme, dura­tion, or form.

We are look­ing for films that explore the com­plex­i­ty of our world by telling indi­vid­ual sto­ries within their local con­texts. Stu­dents of visual anthro­pol­o­gy, media arts, film­mak­ing as well as social­ly engaged film­mak­ers with­out any formal study in these areas are wel­come to submit their work. What mat­ters most to us is the film’s attempt to listen and observe close­ly, the filmmaker’s sen­si­tive engage­ment with its pro­tag­o­nists and sub­jects as well as its orig­i­nal­i­ty in terms of both con­tent and form.

Col­lab­o­ra­tive, par­tic­i­pa­tive meth­ods as well as exper­i­men­tal approach­es to con­vey­ing social-cul­tur­al issues are most wel­come. Just as in recent years, we also aim to create a space for VR projects and inter­ac­tive documentaries.
