Submissions for Open City Documentary Festival 2019 are now open. We're looking for the most exciting and innovative non-fiction storytelling in short, mid-length and feature length documentaries, short audio documentaries, as well as cross-media projects (VR/AR/XR+).
Experimental and hybrid forms are extremely welcome. All we ask is that the artist labels the work non-fiction.
Open City Documentary Festival creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and non-fiction filmmakers, and over 4,000 people attended last year's festival to enjoy some of the very best in contemporary and international documentary.
Prizes are awarded in three categories: Open City Award, Best Emerging International Filmmaker Award, and Best UK Short Award (supported by the British Council).
In 2018, the feature prize winners were awarded a £750 cash prize, with the Best UK Short Award winner receiving mentorship and financial support for festival travel from the British Council. 2019 prizes will be announced soon.
Deadline is April 23rd 2019. Submissions via FilmFreeway: http://bit.ly/OpenCitySubs19
