Call for entries - Late Deadline!

The "Wild Edition" of this year's Neisse Film Festival, in the times of Corona, has just come to a close. Preparations and planning for the 18th Neisse Film Festival in the German-Polish-Czech border region, scheduled for May 18-23, 2021, are already beginning. The festival organizers at the Kunstbauerkino in Grosshennersdorf are looking for competition entries in the categories of feature film, short film and documentary, beginning immediately. A total of eleven Neisse Fish awards and approximately 23,000 Euros in award money await the winners in 2021. In addition to the best films in each category and the audience favorites, awards will be given for best acting, best screenplay and best production design. A special prize will also be granted one film from the entire festival program for a film which is dedicated to the relationship between the neighbors Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Films produced in 2020 and 2021, and produced or co-produced in at least one of the three neighboring countries (Czech Republic, Germany, Poland), are eligible for entry into the competition at the 18th Neisse Film Festival. The final date for all submissions is 15 January 2021. Films will be selected by mid-April 2021.
