Media art is universal. With regard to the independent film scene, numerous media art movements are now diversifying in the sub-genre “film as media art”. Together with the INDEPENDENT DAYS | Internationale Filmfestspiele Karlsruhe, the Filmboard Karlsruhe would like to offer independent filmmakers without great financial opportunities a production option for a low-budget project worth 3,000 Euro. This is why the short film competition "Media Arts Film Scholarship 2023" is being announced under the label "Karlsruhe - UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts". This year, immersive project ideas are also permitted for the first time.
We are looking for artificial short film ideas that tell a story in a creative and unusual way. Regardless of whether you have a fictional, experimental, documentary or documentary short film idea - send it to us and convince our jury of your project.
The film idea should not exceed a running time of 10 minutes and have not yet been implemented. An expert jury will select an idea from all the submissions, which will then be implemented in cooperation with Karlsruhe filmmakers.
The premiere of your film will take place as part of the INDEPENDENT DAYS | Karlsruhe International Film Festival.
