2020 Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival TICFF
March 27 – April 5, 2020 

September 6, 2019 Final Deadline

ntries can be either submitted via FilmFreeway (recommended) or Online Registration Form. Should you have any enquiries pertaining to the call for entry, please contact:ticff.ptsoffice@gmail.com

 

Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival (TICFF) is a biennial event founded by Public Television Service (PTS) in 2004. It is the first film and television festival in Asia dedicated entirely to children at the age of 4-12.

The 9th edition of TICFF is scheduled for April 2020 in Taipei. We are calling for entries for the international competition section with a cash prize of US$25,000 in total for extraordinary productions of dramas, animations and TV/Web programs.

Submissions to competition will also be considered as candidates for our official selection. As the oldest and biggest children’s film festival in Taiwan, TICFF has established a reputation in film selection. Many films screened in TICFF later got invited by other children’s festivals in Taiwan, or approached by Taiwanese distributors and educators. So this could be a great opportunity for your films to get exposure in Taiwan!

 

We also welcome submissions to our non-competitive sections, including documentaries and “Kids as Directors” productions. “Kids as Directors Workshop” is a project for young filmmakers in Taiwan to take the lead and create their own works with assistance from professionals. Their works will be screened during the festival along with productions made by international young filmmakers.

40th Manaki Brothers Cinematographers International FilmFestival

September 14 to 21 September in Bitola, Macedonia

Now accepting submissions for the 40th edition of ICFF “Manaki Brothers” 

The International Cinematographers’ Film Festival “MANAKI BROTHERS”, is the first and oldest international film festival dedicated to the creativity of cinematographers across the world. It started in 1979 at the initiative of one of the main founders-AFPM/the Association of Film Professionals of Macedonia (which also marks its 65 jubilee this year), and was co-organized with the host-city of Bitola and the Cinematheque of Macedonia, established in honor and inspired by the abundant photographic/cinematographic opus of the MANAKI brothers: Yanaki (1878-1954) and Milton (1880-1964), whose 135 birth anniversary is to be celebrated this year as well. Thus, naturally, the cornerstones of the future festival were laid, in the town at the foot of Pelister, the City of Consuls - Bitola, where the Manaki brothers had their photo-studio and cinema theater.
