We are presumably going to inform all participants by the end of June about our choice. The films will only be returned on demand and if we receive an addressed and pre-paid envelope. Otherwise, we are going to archive the film.


All participants are required to own all copy rights for the once mailed in film. By participating the producers are allowing us to show the film non-commercially.

Travel expenses

In case of self-organised travel of the producer, a reimbursement of 30€ will be offered. Board and lodging provided on site.
