We’re very happy to announce that submissions to 12th edition of Short Waves Festival will be open on 12th August!

Films can be submitted to the following competitions:
International Competition
Polish Competition
Dances with Camera
Urban View

International Competition is the most prestigious competition at the Festival for the best productions from all over the world, up to 30 min long. Topic, form and genre are not subjects of rules restrictions. The main goal of the Competition is to create a diverse
programme with a fresh perspective on contemporary cinema and original film language.

Polish Competition is dedicated only for short film produced in Poland. Topic, form and genre are not subjects of rules restrictions. The Competition aims at presenting a diverse panorama of the latest short films, created by Polish filmmakers and at
the same time open their way to international career by presenting them at the Festival.

Dances with Camera is an international competition for short films, whose common language is dance and body movement. To participate in the selection are welcome dance productions from all over the world, which expose endless possibilities of physical
expression, emodied through film medium, regardless of form and genre – from drama, documentary, animation to experimental projects and choreographic impressions.

Urban View is an international competition for short films related to architecture, city planning and design understood as arts, as well as their social, cultural or economic aspects. A building, street, park or object cannot be just a part of scenery, the background to the story, but they must act as a key and the main character for the film. All film genres such as fiction films, documentaries, animations, video clips as well as experimental forms may be submitted.

Submissions to Competitions are accepted solely via FilmFreeway:
