Munich Short Film Festival Call for Entries 2009

MUNICH INTERNATIONAL is excited to announce the call for entries for next year's short film festival, which takes place directly prior to the "big" Munich Filmfest. Starting on Thursday, June 18 through Wednesday, June 24, 2009, the festival will showcase the world's best contemporary short films each night at the tradition-steeped Gloria Filmpalast in the heart of the Bavarian capitol.

Submissions are open to non-German language films of all genres (fiction, animation, documentary, experimental, music video or other) from any nation of the world. Films must not have been shown in Bavaria at a festival, in a theatre or on television before, and must not exceed a length of 15 minutes. All non-English films must have English subtitles. The festival only screens 35mm prints. The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2009, but we kindly ask that you send your film in as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the deadline. Please check the complete submission requirements at

To submit a film, please register at - after registering, you will be guided through the necessary steps, from the filling of simple data requests to the automatic upload of a video file. You may also send a DVD preview copy to the address mentioned on the Reelport website. Please do not send your preview copy directly to the festival.
