Call for entries-2020


You know what they say, thatch your roof before the rain begins. In our case the rain is the next short film festival that will be in Jena in April 2020. And the roof to thatch is obviously the short films we are going to select for you. With that philosophical bit we just wanted to remind you that the call for entries for the next festival is now on. Till the 31st July you can submit your film on filmfreeway with a token fee of $3. Later - more! So hurry up!
