Since last fall, the festival has been accepting submissions and has already received an impressive collection of films. However, there’s still time for aspiring filmmakers to submit their work, as the deadline is on June 20th. The Amandus Blikkfang team eagerly invites film students and young filmmakers from all Nordic countries to submit their films and participate in this exciting event.

To ensure fair competition and maintain the festival’s focus on young talent, participants are required to adhere to the following rules:

  1. Eligible films must either be produced by filmmakers aged 20-26, or created as part of a higher educational institution, such as a film school or similar program. Note that the age limit does not apply to student productions.
  2. Films must not exceed a running time of 30 minutes.
  3. All submitted films must have been completed after June 15, 2022.
  4. Films must be considered Nordic in origin, meaning that the production country must be Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, or associated regions (Greenland, Faroe Islands, Åland, etc). Additionally, film students from Nordic countries studying abroad are welcome to submit their films.

The Amandus Blikkfang team will carefully review all submissions to ensure they meet the specified requirements. Films that do not comply with these rules will not be considered for the festival.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to showcase your talent and passion for filmmaking at the third edition of Amandus Blikkfang Film Festival. Submit your films before the June 20th deadline and join the ranks of the Nordic region’s finest young filmmakers. We look forward to celebrating your creativity and providing a platform for you to connect with like-minded artists, industry professionals, and audiences alike.
