Unfortunate due to Corona - we will have to postpone our annual event untill 2023 :(

Aarhus International Film Festival is a filmfestival that crown online winners every month, to participate in the annual main event that is held live in the heart of Aarhus
There we celebrate the winners from the past year. And crown the main event winners in every category in front of live audience and jury.

All winners will receive an online diploma from us. And all winners will be invited for the main event in Aarhus. Unfortunately we cannot cover travel expenses but entry at the main event will of course be free.

- The winners at the main event there will receive diploma and flowers.

Next Main Even is 2 April 2022 in Godsbanen, Aarhus

- We love film more than anything. And we assure you that we take every submission very seriously. We know how much work it takes to make content. And we will respect this work in best maner - and our jury will watch and judge all submissions equally.

This festival celebrates both films and filmmakers from all over the world - so please submit your project now.
