SUBMISSIONS FOR 7TH FOUR RIVER FILM FESTIVAL ARE NOW OPEN – DON'T KEEP YOUR TALENT IN THE DARK!
If you still haven't tried out your luck in filmmaking, this is the right opportunity. Submissions for the 7th Four River Film Festival, international festival dedicated to high school film have begun. In a somewhat extended and early edition, young filmmakers will once again push the boundaries of entertainment, put their artistic abilities to the test and sharpen all their senses from June 17-21, 2014 in Karlovac (one day longer than before).
With over 300 submissions from 36 countries of the world, 4,000 spectators and 150 international guests Four River Film Festival is truly hit destination for high school film, but also a chance for teenagers to find their own place in the world by observing it through a camera. In addition to high school films in the competition program, FRFF is known for its accompanying program which tries to follow the work of teenagers from year to year by organizing workshops, round tables, excursions and performances by musical bands. If everything mentioned above combined with visiting Karlovac during the ‘yellow fever’ is not incentive enough for you, we have more tricks up our sleeve. This is an established film event which is displayed in one of the most beautiful film halls in the world - on the banks of the four rivers in Karlovac, every night on a different river or destination.
You can compete in four categories - fiction, animation, documentary, free style and a new, fifth category, which will change every year. This year the organizers decided that the fifth category will be dedicated to dance film. Dance connects dance choreography which can provide the content or the idea together with the recording while film directing and editing creates a dance film.
Youth Film Festival and Four River Film Festival can be very good springboards to success and future creative work. Kaja Šišmanović, a girl from Zagreb who won the Grand Prix last year with her film How's Everyone at Home?, is a great example for that because today she is a student on the Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb.
You can find rules and regulations for submissions on http://www.hfs.hr/hfs/festival_777_e_pravila.asp
The deadline for submission of your films for the Youth Film Festival is April 15th, and this year the applications need to be submitted online via this link: http://www.hfs.hr/hfs/festival_777_e_prijavnica.asp
Don't keep your talent in the dark! See you in Karlovac from June 17-21!
