Africa In Motion Short Film Competition

Non Profit Scholarships » International Scholarships » Education Grants

For the second year, the Africa in Motion (AiM) film festival is inviting African filmmakers to submit short films of up to 30 minutes for the festival’s short film competition.

In order to target the competition specifically towards young and emerging African film talent, filmmakers who enter a film for consideration must not have completed a feature-length film previously.

Films entered must have been completed in 2006 or after.

A shortlist from all the entries will be selected in July and announced by the end of August.

From this shortlist, the competition winner will be chosen by a high profile jury and announced at an awards ceremony at the Africa in Motion festival in October.

Submission Guidelines:

We accept entries from all filmmakers of African nationality working in Africa or abroad.

We are particularly interested in giving exposure to young, emerging African filmmakers living and working in Africa.

To this end, filmmakers who enter a film for consideration must not have completed a feature-length film previously.

Films could be fiction, documentary, animation or experimental and shot in any format.

Only recent films directed by filmmakers of African nationality will be accepted.

The film must have been completed in 2006 or after and could have been screened on television, at festivals and in cinemas previously.

Films should be no longer than 30 minutes.

We will only accept films in English or with English subtitles.

Participants are responsible for all translation and subtitling, but please get in touch with us if you need advice/support on this.

The viewing copy should be on VHS PAL or DVD (any region).

All films submitted should be accompanied by a completed entry form and all viewing copies should be clearly labeled with the title of the film and name of the director.

Unfortunately viewing copies and promotional materials submitted cannot be returned to the sender and will be stored in our festival archive.

These are kept exclusively for our own research and non-commercial purposes.

Deadline of Application: 30 June
