On the Trail of the Black Horses! Call for Entries 2017

For the seventh time Ars Independent Festival is searching for the Black Horses! The call for entries for film, animation, video games and music video competitions ends on May 31.

This year’s Ars Independent will take place from September 26 to October 1. Over 6 festival days, we will see the latest in audiovisual culture from around the world.

Four competitions lie at the heart of the festival – a celebration of youth and debut works from 2016 and 2017. Feature film directors will present themselves in the Black Horse of Film, while short animations – in the Black Horse of Animation. The Black Horse of Video Games and Black Horse of Music Videos competitions are dedicated to new games and music videos.

In every category, the authors will compete for the title and statue of the Black Horse alongside a monetary prize of 500 euros. It is worth mentioning that just like last year, the festival’s audience will choose the winners. The nominated titles will be revealed on September 29.

The rules and entry forms are available on the subpage Submit the Black Horse.

„Every year, we receive submissions from various places around the world. From there, we choose about 70 titles which we’ll be living by at Ars. Young debutants always surprise with their fresh look on the surrounding reality and the media they utilize,” adds Bartek Sołtysik, the festival’s media spokesperson.
