European films (feature-length fiction or documentary films – (minimum length: 60 minutes; no short films!) produced in 2022/2023 can be submitted. We are looking for innovative European films, which reflect current political and social realities of Europe‘s changing societies.

We aim to open up new cinematic territories, which are underrepresented in the everyday movie business.
