Call for submissions: New Horizons International Competition

The 17th edition of the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival will take place in Wrocław, from 3rd to 13th August 2017. The New Horizons International Competition — a platform where artistic cinema that extend the boundaries set by conventional filmmakers is presented — remains the core element of the festival.

The Competition is a place for cinematic visionaries and uncompromising artists who have the courage to follow their own path in defiance of popular trends, expand the language of the cinema, and to talk about significant issues in their own, unique language.

The Competition includes innovative feature films, experimental, and animated productions that are longer than 60 minutes and have been produced after 1st of January 2016 (that have never been publicly screened in Poland). The Festival organizers prefer world-wide, international, and European premieres.

The winner of the New Horizons International Competition will be awarded the Grand Prix and a prize of 20,000 EUR. The Festival audience as well as the FIPRESCI film critics will be offering their awards too.

Submissions are now open at and will be accepted until 22nd of March 2017.
