Euregion Film Festival 2020

With its fifth-year anniversary, Euregion Film Festival 2020 has a motto for all new and professional filmmakers - Dare & Endure! At this all-out 5-day festival with a Pitch Forum, ScriptLab, ShortsLab, Short Film Competition, special screenings, networking drinks, you can submerge yourself into an intensive talent-development atmosphere to dare creating new projects and endure the ups & downs of the filmmaking process!

This is the moment to bring your skills to the next level. Dare to participate and meet like-minded creators like yourself who are on a similar path to making their dream come true or get inspired by other filmmakers that already finalized their projects.

Whether you are just general audience, a new filmmaker or a professional one, Euregion Film Festival offers a dynamic and high quality festival experience, with films from all over the world, inspiring workshops, lectures and more.

Moreover, Euregion Film Festival gives upcoming talents a podium by inviting filmmakers to the festival, organizing special networking events, meet & greets and workshops. We will put everything on order for them to make a shift in their way of filmmaking, make sure they can expand their network, collaborate with each other, talk with the audience and create new projects.

The participants of the Official Short Film Competition will be announced on February 1, 2020.

"Great festival with highly professional workshops. They’re there to showcase the films and the filmmaker."
