Europe at Heart: competition for young filmmakers

Reading time: 1 minutes and 23 seconds

FERA is offering €3,000 to produce a short film in their exciting Europe at Heart competition. If you're a filmmaker and under 25, then they want to hear from you.


FERA, the Federation of European Directors, is commissioning a short film that depicts and explores what it means to live and work in Europe today, and is on the hunt for a talented and imaginative director to create something special.

The organisation wants young filmmakers to send them a concept that shows their "aspirations, hopes and fears" about Europe, and reflects their personal experiences of living in the continent. Entrants should also think about how they see Europe in the future, giving particular focus to what they hope the continent will be like. FERA has also asked the film gives credence to a specific topic, but still refers to Europe on the whole.

If you are interested in entering, please email Madeleine Hofmann ([email protected]) to express your interest by Monday 7th October. Filmmakers will then have until 15th October to send a concept and, should they choose to, a link to a short clip / moodfilm to the same email address.

Ideas will be judged by a jury made up of directors Thekla Reuten (Netherlands), Ivana Todorovic (Serbia), Elina Psykou (Greece) and Peter Carpentier (Germany). The winner will be awarded €3.000 to produce their short film by 20th November.
