ZsiFi: Short Film Contest of the Hungarian Jewish Film Festival

Submission is closed now!

Everybody needs a team!

Open short film contest


The Jewish Film Festival

 

The second „ZsiFi” - the Jewish Film Festival of Budapest (November 7-10, 2013) in cooperation with Daazo.com organizes a short film contest, with the motto „Everybody needs a team!”.

 

The team that I belong to. The team with which I identify myself. The team I depend on. The team that supports me. We can adjust to our community and the teams around us in countless ways. But the essence is that : everybody needs a team ! Or to challenge this idea: does everybody need a team ? We are seeking short films which illustrate this theme from a fresh perspective. We are particularly seeking short films which focus on a creative approach to Judaism looking at religion, people, minorities, or your own interpretation.
 

Conditions:

-          Any method, technique or device may be used to shoot your film- you can use your cell phone, your camera or anything else you see fit.

-          The genre of the film may be of your choosing- you may choose to create an animation, a cartoon or any other type of short film.

-          The film cannot be longer than 10 minutes.

-          The work does not need to be brand new and you may submit films you have produced or directed in the past.

-          As an applicant, you may submit more than one film, all of which will be judged in the tender.

-          Citizens of any country or nationality may apply.

-          The film has to be include English subtitles (in case it's not in English)

Surrealism. Speculation on the split mind phenomenon. Two lines of fortune. Dream and life. Good and evil. All of them are in parallel. The girl walks through the forest, across the field, among the fabulous arts of building. She cries and laughs, looks for something, gets scared and runs away. Does she get into a trap or move towards the sun?
