Call for submissions: New Horizons International Competition 2022
The 22nd edition of the New Horizons International Film Festival will take place in Wrocław, from 21st to 31st of July 2022. The New Horizons International Competition — a platform where artistic cinema that extends the boundaries set by conventional filmmakers is presented — remains the core element of the festival.
Theo and the Metamorphosis, dir. Damien Odoul, Grand Prix winner of the 21st New Horizons IFF
The competition is meant for films that constantly push the boundaries of “new horizons”. We look for unique and original narratives, documentaries, essays, and animations that experiment with how the film should look like and communicate with its audience, either following or opposing the traditional concepts. We await creations that demand a vastly different perspective – that provoke to think and feel. Recent winners are Theo and metamorphosis by Damien Odoul, The Metamorphosis of Birds by Catarina Vasconcelos, Bait by Mark Jenkin, Holiday by Isabella Eklöf or Western by Valeska Grisebach.
The Competition includes productions that are longer than 60 minutes and have been produced after 1st of January 2021 (that have never been publicly screened in Poland). The festival organizers prefer world, international, and European premieres. The winner of the New Horizons International Competition will be awarded the Grand Prix and a prize of 15,000 EUR. The Festival audience will be offering their award, too. Submissions are now open at nowehoryzonty.pl and will be accepted until 20th of March 2022.
