With the ambition of presenting the best Nordic filmtalents, SPOT is now accepting submissions to the film programme. If you happen to be one of these filmtalents, don’t hesitate to submit your film and get a chance at screening it at one of the most important audience and industry festivals for music, films and interactive media in Scandinavia.
Last year the Danish-Palestinian director Mahdi Fleifel won the main prize with his film A World Not Ours which was selected by a jury headed by producer Vibeke Windeløv (Dogville, 2003). SPOT sent the director to the next level of his career with a mentorship programme with film director Lone Scherfig (An Education, 2009) and scriptwriter Nikolaj Scherfig (Broen, 2011-). This year, SPOT will be selecting two winners, one in each of the two competition programmes SPOT The Film and SPOT The Documentary.
You can submit your film to SPOT here, as well as read the festival’s entry requirements. The submission deadline is February 23 at 12 pm.
The following four categories are accepting submissions:
SPOT The Film, the festival’s competition programme for new nordic fiction films with a running time of 20-60 minutes.
SPOT The Documentary, the festival’s competition programme for new nordic documentaries with a running time of 20-60 minutes.
SPOT The Music, a programme which screens music films out of competition from all over the world.
SPOT The Video, a programme which screens music videos out of competition from all around the world.
SPOT takes place April 30 – May 3 in the heart of Aarhus, Denmark. This year’s SPOT Film will close on Sunday May 3 with a day of films and an award show. In addition to the film programme, SPOT also offers a programme filled with seminars, workshops and networking events.
