Film Submissions for exground filmfest 33 Still Possible Until July 1st 2020

Programme Preview: Focus on Italy / goEast Competition 2020

Films can still be submitted until 1 July 2020 for the 33rd edition of exground filmfest, to take place from 13 to 22 November 2020. Both short and feature-length works in the categories of fictions feature, documentary, animated and experimental film are eligible for participation. exground filmfest awards cash and non-cash prizes valued at over 20,000 euros in the scope of seven competition sections. In addition to an exciting film programme featuring international independent productions as well as a variety of supporting events, exground filmfest traditionally presents a Country Focus – this year’s Focus is devoted to Italy’s significant cinematic output.

One portion of the programme has already been fixed: the organisational team from exground has made space in the programme for its partner festival goEast – Festival of Central and Eastern European Film, so that goEast’s entire Competition section can be presented to the Wiesbaden audience in November 2020 at exground filmfest.

It is only natural for us to support our colleagues from goEast in this crisis to the greatest extent possible,” as Andrea Wink explained on behalf of the festival’s organisational team.

All of the films of the goEast Competition will be shown out of competition, with the filmmakers in attendance.
