Call for submissions: New Horizons International Competition 2019

Festivals 2019-01-08

The 19th edition of the New Horizons International Film Festival will take place in Wrocław, from 25th July to 4th August 2019. The New Horizons International Competition — a platform where artistic cinema that extend the boundaries set by conventional filmmakers is presented — remains the core element of the festival. The competition is meant for films that constantly push the boundaries of “new horizons”. We look for unique and original narratives, documentaries, essays, and animations that experiment with how the film should look like and communicate with its audience, either following or opposing the traditional concepts and masters of the craft. We await creations that demand a vastly different perspective – that provoke to think and feel.

The Competition includes productions that are longer than 60 minutes and have been produced after 1st of January 2018 (that have never been publicly screened in Poland). The Festival organizers prefer world-wide, international, and European premieres.

The winner of the New Horizons International Competition will be awarded the Grand Prix and a prize of 15,000 EUR. The Festival audience will be offering their award, too.

Submissions are now open at and will be accepted until 24th of March 2019.
