CALLS FOR ENTRY
The call for entries, for the 2019 edition of the Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF), concerns only the International Immersive Works Competition.
There is no call for submission for feature films, TV series, music videos, web series, and other web formats, which are identified and preselected directly by the Festival programmers.
The short films program, which is a non competitive section, is delegated to Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur since 2018 and will be screened at GIFF.
IMMERSIVE WORKS – INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
Vestige, Aaron Bradbury
The Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF) is opening its call for submission for its International Immersive Works Competition (VR, AR, MR).
Since 2014, the Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF) has presented a program of international VR works. Since 2016, this program includes a competitive section with ten immersive works (virtual, augmented or mixed reality) that are selected, then presented to a specialized Jury of directors, digital creators, and producers from all over the world. The Immersive Jury awards a Reflet d’Or to the best immersive work, worth CHF 10’000 donated by the City of Geneva.
Submission – on MyGIFF online platform – for immersive works (International Competition) will be open from May to August 2019.
We are looking for immersive works (VR, AR, MR) from any country.
– works must have already been shown or will be shown/broadcast in 2018-2019.
– works need a Swiss premiere status in festivals to be part of the international competition. Works entered cannot have been shown in events/festivals in Switzerland before 11 November 2019.
All genre are welcome – documentary, fiction, cinema, animation, and installation – as long as the work has its own narrative dimension and an interactive, linear or immersive aspect. Coherence and pertinence between the content, the storytelling, and the experience are the deciding factors in the selection process.
Closing date for registration: 20 August 2019.
