Are you a high school student shooting for the stars and trying out your luck in filmmaking? Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of the yellowest film week in this part of the universe! We officially started accepting submissions for the 28th Youth Film Festival and the 16th Four River Film Festival, national and international festivals dedicated to high school film. The festivals will be held from 12th to 16th September in Karlovac, Croatia and will be organized by the Croatian Film Association and Cinema Club Karlovac.
Have you heard of our numbers? We hit a number of over 1500 film submissions per year, covering over 50 countries, 4000 viewers and over 200 international guests. These stats definitely made us a hit destination for high school film, but also a great place to look for an opportunity of finding your own place in the world perceived through a film frame.
If you are 14 to 20 years old and you finished making your film after January 1, 2021, you can compete in 4 different categories: fiction film, animated film, documentary film and freestyle film.
The selection committee for the 28th Youth Film Festival and the 16th Four River Film Festival consists of Ph.D. Ana Đordić, professor of Croatian language and philosophy and doctor of filmology, film critic Boško Picula and director of photography and director Dinka Radonić.
Let us answer some of the questions you might have;
- HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR FILMS? Via FilmFreeway!
- ANY SPECIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS? You can find our Terms and Conditions on the link above.
- DEADLINE? We will be accepting submissions by June 1st, 2023.
Our festivals are known for their additional program with which we try to enrich the experience through different workshops, round tables and debates.
We like to think the most magical part of the festivals comes at night – during the yellow fever, the banks of Karlovac’s four rivers are used as screening locations!
See you in Karlovac!
