CALL FOR ENTRIES: Films from the North

Tromsø International Film Festival, Norway's largest film festival, invites short and documentary films to participate in its sidebar FILMS FROM THE NORTH.

For the eleventh year running, FILMS FROM THE NORTH will present new shorts and documentaries from the Barents region and northern Canada. We invite films wherein the subject, the production or the director is related to the northern regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia or Canada to participate.

The Tromsø Palm Award
Selected films can be shown in or out of competition. The Tromsø Palm (Tromsøpalmen) will be awarded to the best film in competition, along with a prize of 5000 Euro to the film's director.

Film Submission
The submission deadline is October 15, 2010. A DVD copy of the film must be sent to us by October 20. Works-in-Progress are accepted.

Participating directors who attend TIFF will receive a travel grant, free accreditation and invitations to TIFF's main events.
