Dear craft filmmakers, we’re entering the final countdown for the reception of films! We already have 87 registered filmmakers who have sent their works to participate in the festival through the platform FilmFreeway. Do you want to be one of them? Here you can learn how to do it.

In Craft Film Fest BCN we are looking for films with a strong identity and personal taste, with passion, full of talent. We want to provide visibility and support to the films of auteurs that don’t play by the rules of the mainstream media, but offer their personal vision to the big screen and give us pieces of cinema in which freedom and risk are not limited. We want to know the point of view of the creators, their personal distinctive style and the story that they want to tell us. Quite often, this means a small support from the industry and low to no budget. Anyway, this is not a strictly defining characteristic of the cinema we want to see. The most important thing is that it comes straight from the heart.

Masculin féminin, Jean-Luc Godard (1966)

To participate in Craft Film Fest 2018, you need to follow these rules:

  • The film lenght must be between 60 and 120 minutes
  • It must be a feature film (no documentary, no short film)
  • Any genre inside fiction is welcome (animation, fantastic, horror, adventure, sci-fi, melodrama, musical, experimental…)
  • The film must be subtitled (preferrably in Spanish, but we also accept English subtitules)
  • The film must not have been screened in Barcelona before
  • The film must not be available in any online platform in Spain
Benny’s video, Michael Haneke (1992)

If you think your film fits the criteria and you are willing to promote a personal and different work, Craft is you opportunity! We want to make a special call to students who just finished their first film. We encourage them to participate in the festival. In Craft we give all our support to new talents who often find limitations when distributing their creations.

The deadline for sending your film is the 31st of January. You can do it through the platform FilmFreeway for only 10€. What are you waiting for? WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO DISCOVERING YOUR CINEMA!
