    The Calvert Journal Film Festival has announced the opening of its call for submissions for its second edition.

    Filmmakers from across the New East are invited to submit their titles in six categories and is open to professional and non-professional filmmakers alike. Showcasing both fiction and documentary features of all lengths, selections are based on artistic merit, authenticity and originality in voice, storytelling, and aesthetic approach. Shortlisted films will be selected by an international jury of film professionals, after initial review by The Calvert Journal curatorial team and external selectors. A special series of features and online events will run alongside the screenings.

    Launched in 2020, the first edition of The Calvert Journal Film Festival brought together over 5,000 people to watch seven films in the course of a week. For this year’s edition, it will screen over 30 titles across the seven categories of the Official Festival Competition: documentaries, animation, minority language, fiction, student films, experimental films, and short films. Each category sees prizes for Best Film Prize. An audience Favourite Prize will also be given to one film across all categories.

    The Calvert Joiurnal Film Festival call for entries goes from 15 April to 15 June, 2021. Find more information – HERE
