FUTURE FILMS FESTIVAL - brand new and unique international film festival born in Serbia

    We are happy to announce the FUTURE FILMS FESTIVAL - a festival of video presentations of films and series in development. The first edition is on December 15th 2021. on site in Belgrade, Serbia and online on www.futurefilmsfestival.com

    The mission of the FFF is to become a place of fresh ideas, where authors, producers, writers, broadcasters and agents will meet to find the best partners for their projects, and, also, to test their ideas with an interactive audience participation.
    Festival has an Official selection (competition programme) with professional and student categories in each format (fiction, documentary, animation, both one-off and/or series) and with free choice of genres. All filmmakers are welcome to apply via online application form on the festival website, and to attach presentation video. Applications are open until 08.12. 2021. at midnight.
    We encourage creativity, but also learn and practice the best ways to attract the target audiences, both in the professional circles and among viewers. Video forms are left free, in recommended length between 3 and 10 minutes, having in mind different stages of projects that will be submitted. The task and the challenge is to present the basic idea, the story, characters and their universe, authors involved, desired partners, estimated production size, targeted audiences and markets, in a way that will excite festival audiences and trigger the attention of the film professionals by clearly showing project potential.
    Future films festival is an opportunity to test the taste and reactions of the general and professional public, to reach the fastest and the highest quality realisation of AV projects for any deliverable platform, with the strongest partners. And, to win significant awards from the festival partners and supporters.
    Unofficial program will be a screening revue of the most visually creative, original and innovative video presentations of upcoming projects, whose themes and narratives attract the attention of the public - primarily future audiences! Audience will vote for the best video presentations, and for the best projects in every category,too.  Audience awards await the smartest voters, and we have many surprises provided from the growing number of 3F sponsors.
    Festival market, the third segment of the program, is open for all film makers - just register on our website, create profile and get access to all participants, meet key players from the funding bodies, festivals, production companies, broadcasters, sales agents, distributors, media. In the spirit of creative exchange and profitable cooperation, we are contributing to the creation of real EU co-productions, joint work and strengthening the European internal market, but also, increasing the value of European films world wide.
    Between the two editions, the entire program will be shown at the "Night of Future Films" event, a kind of traveling edition of the festival, which will be shown both online and in cinemas throughout Serbia, the Balkans, Baltic and Southeast Europe, during the first year, with the ambition to grow into the most representative festival of new quality ideas and the most perspective for creating new partnerships and developing new audiences.
