4-chances is a newly made festival that has one edition in Brazil (Manaus) and since that one is still some time ahead, we decided to make a small German edition after the winter. 4-Chances German Edition will be held in Kassel in the City-Hotel screening room from May 5th to May 8th. Since this is only a smaller event we will kindly ask you to understand that we can select only from 40 to 80 films, very much depending on the length of the movies. You can submit movies that are up to one hour of length and the movies can be in any genre! Read more in the further description!
The idea is that CHANCES will spread to four citites, but depending on the success of the festival in Brazil (and now in Kassel, Germany). Chances Germany Edition is a 4 day filmfest event and will welcome live audiences.
Since CHANCES is an event made by filmmakers we can't pay for you accomodation during the festival and cannot provide you with any prize money, but the prizes will come in form of statues and laurels!
CHANCES will give away the following awards:
BEST ACTOR and ACTRESS
BEST STUDENT FILM
BEST SHORT FILM
All submission fees are non-refundable. We will not return your screening and exhibition copies. The Festival Directorate may deny participation to any film unable to meet the technical requirements for a public screening of good quality. The festival has the right to disqualify a winning film for any reasons, without having to explain the reasons to the submitter.
Please submit subtitles on all work except English narratives. Every film spoken in an language different than English must have english subtitles, since this is an international festival.We accept films of any genre and of any lenght.
