interfilm International Short Film Festival Berlin is now accepting submissions for its 39th edition, running from November 14-19, 2023. The festival will showcase films of all genres, up to 20 minutes in length. Seven competitions are planned for this year’s interfilm, including International Competition, Confrontations Competition, Documentary Competition, German Competition, Green Film Competition, Eject XVIII and Online Competition.
interfilm is also an Oscar-qualifying festival. Since 2018, the winners of Best Live Action and Best Animation Award in the International Competition will be eligible for consideration in the Live Action Short Film and Animated Short category of the Academy Awards® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
All films must be submitted via Shortfilmdepot and there is an entry fee of €8. A screening fee of €50 will be paid to each film running in a non-competitive program, per non-competitive program (for up to 3 screenings per program respectively). Successful submissions will be notified by October 2, 2023.
Deadline: May 29, 2023
