Call for entries for the Freedom Film Festival is now open

call for entries

As every year, in July we return to Radom with KAMERALNE LATO. From now on, you can submit your films to the competition section called FREEDOM Film Festival that will be accompanying the event.

Over the last 15 years the Polish National Filmmeetings KAMERALNE LATO have become regular event in Radom’s calendar. It’s an opportunity to take part in free screenigs, workshops and debates with filmmakers and other short film enthusiasts. There are also competition sections, which have been held under the name FREEDOM Film Festival since last year – to focus participants’ attention on the idea of freedom and give space to discuss about its multifaceted nature.

During the 16th edition of KAMERALNE LATO we continue what has always been the goal of the event in Radom – we bring Polish Cinema in its short form to wide audience. This year, however, we are strengthening the freedom aspect of the event even more – assures Łukasz Adamski, art director of the festival.

Three film competitions at the FREEDOM Film Festival

FREEDOM Film Festival is not only focused on the issue of freedom, but it also extends the program of KAMERALNE LATO with the International Short Film Competition, which gave it a new, transnational character. As part of the upcoming edition of the FREEDOM Film Festival, there will be organized three competitions open to the public:

  • The International Short Film Competition, open to short films (up to 40 minutes) representing all forms and genres;
  • The National Short Film Competition, open to short films (up to 40 minutes) representing all forms and genres, produced on the territory of the Republic of Poland and created by a Polish producer or co-producer;
  • The Jet Films Competition – HYDE PARK, open to short films (up to 10 minutes) created by beginning filmmakers and not falling under the standard classification.
