You are the filmmaker

YOU'RE THE FILMMAKER

Competition theme: FAKE NEWS, HOAX
Submit your film by 20 February 2019

This year the festival is announcing not one but two categories in its You’re the filmmaker short amateur film competition. As in previous years, it is open to individuals (and groups), while for the first time school teams (from elementary and secondary schools) can also enter.

The theme of the seventh edition of the competition is the circulation of false and alarming reports on the internet: FAKE NEWS, HOAX. The theme is highly topical and it is particularly important that children and teenagers grasp its true meaning.

One or more entrant can compete in the Individuals category, though only one member of a group can submit a film.
Groups of a maximum of three members from elementary or secondary schools, under the guidance of a teacher, may enter the School Team category.

The winner of the INDIVIDUALS category will receive:

1st place
20,000 CZK, Samsung Galaxy A7 mobile telephone and voucher for 02 videothéque valued at 1,000 CZK
2nd place
10,000 CZK, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 LTE 32 GB mobile tablet and voucher for 02 videothéque valued at 500 CZK
3rd place
5,000 CZK and voucher for year-long O2 TV valued at 3,000 CZK

The winner of the SCHOOL TEAM category will receive:
