The Australian International Experimental Film Festival is now calling for entries for selection to its 2014 festival programming. 2013 saw an amazing collection of work being submitted and we are keen to have the opportunity to see some more of the same - we're greedy and like to feast on hours upon hours of viewing. As with previous years there is no restriction on production date and works on 16mm and both 8mm formats and expanded cinema are eagerly encouraged.
The time has come again to call for entries to the Australian International Experimental Film Festival. We are gearing up for another amazing collection of works to view and are eager to announce that A.I.E.F.F. is now open to receive experimental film and video submissions for consideration of inclusion in its 2013 festival programme. We are aware not everyone on our mailing list is a film/video maker but are keen to get the word out as far as possible so please pass our call onto anyone who may want to know.
As with previous years there is no restriction on production date and works on 16mm and both 8mm formats and expanded cinema are eagerly encouraged.

Please make sure you read the guidelines regarding formats accepted for both previewing and screening before sending in your work.

The 2012 Australian International Experimental Film Festival Melbourne, 27th - 29th April Deadline February 3rd 2012
Entries for the 2012 festival are now open.
Now in its third year, A.I.E.F.F. continues in its effort to reach experimental film and video artists in some of the most remote places in the world as well as the big metropolis cities that heave with artistic endeavours in this exciting area of practice. In its first two years the festival has received submissions from as far as Lebanon, Peru, Iran, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Guyana, Israel, Brazil, and further, with entries arriving from over 35 countries for its 2011 festival.
The A.I.E.F.F. operates as a 'not for profit' and currently receives no support from funding bodies. The small token fee requested for submission is to enable A.I.E.F.F. to promote the event through publicity material to attract the public attention deserved to the quality work being shown as part of its programming.
With the intention of not favouring one work over another and giving each that is selected for the festival programme its deserved credit, the A.I.E.F.F. is a non-award event.
Following on from the success of its 2010 festival A.I.E.F.F. is gearing up for another thrilling event for 2011 and we are now calling for submissions.
We are looking forward to receiving exciting work, be it video, film, or expanded cinema, so if you have something you think we should see or know someone who may be interested in submitting we will be keen to receive it.
The process to participate is simple and the online entry and regulations can be found on our website at the addresses below. Just follow the instructions in filling out the entry form, and those that are given once the form has been submitted about how to pay the small submission fee of AU$10.
Closing date for submissions is 14th February 2011 (postmarked)
