Cairo International Film Festival accepting entries [Worldwide]

Filmmakers worldwide can enter this contest.

The Cairo International Film Festival Foundation (CIFFF) is accepting submissions for its 35th International Film Festival, which will take place November 27-December 6.

The festival's competition is divided into three sections: international feature films, Arab feature films and human rights films. Submissions to the international feature film category must be at least 60 minutes long.

Directors of films submitted to the Arab feature category must be Arabic or of Arabic origin, and the films should address an Arabic-related subject. All films submitted for judging in any of the three categories should have been produced after December 2011.

The original versions of each film will be screened with English subtitles.

First-place winners in the international feature category will receive US$50,000; the first-place winner in the Arab feature category will receive US$30,000; and the human rights first-place winner will receive a certificate.

The aim of the festival is to allow meetings between professionals and to build bridges between workers in the field of visual media from different cultures, promoting the industry in Egypt, the Arab world and other countries.

The festival is sponsored by public and private organizations in Egypt and around the world.
The submission deadline is August 31.
