Tricky Women/Tricky Realities is accepting entries for the 2023 festival edition, taking place in Vienna from the 8th to the 12th of March, 2023. In addition to the centrepiece of our festival - the international competition - we will pay special attention to animated filmmaking in Switzerland, as well as in Latin America.
Tricky Women/Tricky Realities is the only film festival in the world dedicated to animation by women*. The deadline for applications for the preliminary selection is October 4th, 2022.
We cannot wait to see your powerful, subversive and evocative animated films!
Join us, as we exchange the laws of physics with the laws of imagination, replace the physical with the potential and mobilize the power of animation to explore and articulate some tricky realities!
The festival offers an international competition of animated short films finished after January 1st, 2021 and realised by women* (male co-directors are welcome). Each filmmaker, producer or distributor may submit as many films as they like. Each film submitted must be accompanied by an entry form. No films entered in prior Tricky Women/Tricky Realities Festivals shall be admitted.
