Film Submission FAQ
What are the submission deadlines?
The deadline for submitting a film for the next La.Meko festival is December 15, 2023. The deadline for submissions from universities and distributors may differ.
How do I submit my film?
Please fill in our online application form. Within the form, please provide a preview link to an online streaming ressource (e.g. Vimeo). No file-transfer links like WeTransfer, Dropbox etc. please!
How many films can I submit?
You may submit two films per director, but please fill in the the application form for each film separately.
Are there any fees for submitting a film?
No. In return, however, the La.Meko festival does not pay licence fees for films submitted to the competition. This is because all our screenings are non-commercial in nature and the festival does not generate any revenue from the screenings or any other related activities.
Will I receive confirmation that my film has been submitted?
No, you will not get a confirmation. If your film has been accepted, we will get in contact via email.
Are there any awards?
There are currently at least six awards with prize money of between €250 and €500. Three of the awards are selected by a jury, the others by the votes of the audience.
If you have any difficulties with your submission or any further questions regarding your application, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
