Submit your films for Tricky Women/Tricky Realities 2022 now!


Our call is open! Animated films for Tricky Women/Tricky Realities 2022 can be entered until 4 October 2021. The Tricky Women/Tricky Realities International Competition is a seismograph of independent filmmaking by women* worldwide. The next edition of the festival will take place from 9 to 13 March 2022.

We are proud to announce a new award: The Maria Lassnig Golden Film Reel will be awarded for the very first time in 2022 for an outstanding animation. Sponsored by the Maria Lassnig Foundation, it is worth 10,000 euros and will be awarded annually. An international jury will select the winner from the films shown in the International Competition of our festival.

Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) was one of the most important artists of our time. Her work as a painter and filmmaker defies classification. She was a pioneer of experimental animation and one of the first women in the German-speaking world to be appointed to a professorship in art. In 1982, she established the Studio for Experimental Animation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the first teaching studio for animated film in Austria.

We are looking forward to your entries in the following categories:

  • International competition (animated shorts finished after January 1st, 2020) 
  • Work / Work Affairs (not limited to recent works), in cooperation with Arbeiterkammer Wien
  • Feminism rocks! – we call out for feminist films! (not limited to recent works)
  • Animated Feature Films for our non-competitive section
