Call for entries finished

Until May 31, we were receiving entires to the film, animation, video game and music video international competitions at Ars Independent 2016. We are very happy to announce that this year, as in previous years, we’ve received hundreds of submissions!

Right this moment, our programmers are going through more than 1700 animated short films and 100 feature films. Around 100 music videos and 100 video games are also waiting for us.

“Wow!” adds Bartek Sołtysik, the festival’s media spokeperson.

6 selected feature films, both debuts and second pictures, will compete in the Black Horse of Film competition. Similarly, 6 games will be in consideration for the Black Horse of Video Games award. The Black Horse of Animation will present 20-30 short animations – debuts, second films and school works. Likewise, we will see 20-30 videos in the Black Horse of Music Videos. In all competitions, only new creations released after January 1, 2015 were eligible for entry.

The names of the works and their authors competing for the Black Horses title and statuette will be revealed on August 22, alongside the full programme of Ars Independent Festival 2016. This year, the winners will be chosen by our festival audience.

Continuing with the good news, on June 14 we will have our first programme announcements. On the same date, festival passes (60 PLN) at TicketPro and TicketPortal will become available for pre-purchase.
