Submissions are categorized into 3 separate film types, differentiated by length. Each of the
film types involve varying degrees of preparation and direction in order to produce an
unforgettable viewing experience for audiences from around the world.
- A film does not have to be long in order to have a clear, relevant and complex
narrative that is able to engage with the audience and convey meaningful information.
Submissions are open to “reels”, giving prospective video makers a chance to
demonstrate their abilities of creating a short video, the contents and production of
which may rival a full-length feature film. Attention grabbing, leave you wanting
Short film (5-20min.)
- For the purposes of our event we have defined a short film with a running time
between 5 and 20 minutes including all credits. Short films are a great opportunity to
showcase talent while expressing your creative ideas on a topic within a relatively
short time, meaning it requires an effective message. Often a prequel to a feature film,
a typical first stage for new filmmakers, or for experienced ones as an alternative form
Long Film (20min.+)
- From an episode of a TV series to a full-length feature film, this film type lets
prospective video makers take a deeper dive into the world of cinema, giving them a
chance to write, produce and direct a potential blockbuster that will change the way
the audience views a certain topic. Set your own limits and let your inner Spielberg
blossom on the big screen!
Prizes are awarded to the best film per category per film type. With 10 categories and 3 film types, prospective filmmakers are able to attain one of 30 exciting prizes including various film and photography equipment. Additionally, each successful participant will receive a trophy and an official certificate of excellence from the committee of the London Eco Film Festival.
