. American Film Festival - Call for films

2. American Film Festival, the sister festival of Era New Horizons IFF is calling for new independent US-produced feature films completed in 2010 and 2011.

AFF is the first film event in Eastern Europe solely devoted to contemporary and classic American cinema and providing its audience members with the filmic images of American culture and social realities. The second edition will continue along those programming lines. AFF will present mainstream highlights, independent productions and experimental narrative and documentary features from the US.

The second edition of the festival will be held in Wrocław between 15 and 20 November 2011. Films will be divided into sections already familiar to the public such as HIGHLIGHTS - gala shows of the newest famous films, SPECTRUM - a panorama of modern American cinema, AMERICAN DOCS - documentary films: the most important productions of the season that largely show the face of the 21st century America, and ON THE EDGE - discoveries, experiments, auteur films, often "crossing borders" of the recognized forms and acceptable contents.

The films from the SPECTRUM and AMERICAN DOCS sections, which will be premiered in Poland during the festival, will take part in the competition.

The Audience Award will be given to the winners in two categories: Best Feature Narrative ($10,000) and Best Feature Documentary ($5,000).

Films can be submitted via the online form available on the website: http://www.americanfilmfestival.pl/entryForm.do
Submissions deadline: 15 September 2011.
