Concept Competition: Don’t Forget the Deadline on April 20

We open the concept competition for the fourth time. If you have an idea for a short film inspired by the stories, people and places around you, send it to us at by April 20, 2017. Don’t keep your best concepts for yourselves; bring them to our film workshop!

The authors of the best concepts will have a chance to consult and develop their film at our free film workshop led by Viola Ježková and Ivo Bystřičan. During three creative sessions held in the spring and in the summer, the professional documentarists will guide you through the individual stages of filmmaking from a theoretical introduction to a rough-cut consultation. The finished films can find their way to the main competition by September 15.

The authors of the best concepts will get free access to the online documentary cinema and to the series of open seminars for the public; don’t forget to follow our programme. The best films will be screened at Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival and their makers will get film prizes from Europe Media Nest.
