Szczecin European Film Festival (SEFF) - more than a film festival for documentaries.
Szczecin European Film Festival is a film event, a forum for meetings and cooperation in the field of film, directly on the Polish-German borderland.
The festival is organised by the Polish OFFicyna Association, located at 3-4 Lenartowicza Street in Szczecin (71-445). The festival program is carried out in partnership with a Polish-German network of organisers, and presented in Szczecin/Poland, and in several towns of the Polish-German region.
The profile of the Szczecin European Film Festival refers to the latest trends in the development of artistic audio-visual editing. The festival focuses on the formal crossing of boundaries, relating to the perception of reality – especially such crossing that enables new perspectives. This spectrum is enhanced by a vast accompanying program, ranging from the classics of documentary cinema to contemporary experiments with picture and sound.
Submissions for two competitions – one Polish and one European.
We only accept European productions/co-productions no longer than 90 minutes and produced after January 1st 2014. Preference will be given to film premieres.
In order to submit a film, a correctly filled entry form must reach us by June 15th 2015, as well as a preview copy of the film (DVD or a link). The entry form is available at www.europeanfilmfestival.szczecin.pl.
Discussions with the filmmakers are, right next to the screenings, an essential part of our festival. Entering a film obliges the filmmaker (or their representative) to attend the festival screening as well as the public discussion in Szczecin, given that their film is qualified.
A Polish-German program committee will select the films to be shown at the festival. The committee reserves the right to choose the competition in which the film will be presented. Awards will be given by an international jury created by the organizers.
