Students and debutant filmmakers wanted

STIFF – Student International Film Festival is now calling on all student and debutant filmmakers to submit their films for the 8th festival edition which will take place from 4th to 7th of November 2021 in Rijeka, Croatia.

Works entering the competition program must be original, student-created films or debutants films of all genres: fiction, documentary, animation, and experimental films. All the works need to be up to 60 min in length and completed after the 1st of January 2018. The films must be in English or with English subtitles and must be submitted via FilmFreeway platform.

The deadline for registration and delivery of materials is May 30th, 2021.

STIFF festival accepts films of all thematic preoccupations, but this year special attention will be given to the BODY. We wish to broaden our understanding of corporeality in relation to the moving image by reflecting on the body of the author, the body of the film, the body of the viewer, and the body in the film.

What is the relationship of a body with the moving image? How does culture inscribe meaning into bodies? Does our body connect us to the world or separates us from it? Have we overcome body taboos? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction?

Festival dates: 4-7 November 2021
