AT THE FRINGE International Arts Festival will take place in Tranås (Sweden) from 27th June to 4th July 2020.
The film section of the festival is focused on screening experimental films and videopoems from all over the world and we are happy to open the new call for films!

Submit your film in one of these three sections:

MAGMA - OPEN CALL FOR EXPERIMENTAL SHORT FILMS
By definition, magma is a burning matter, blend of liquid and gaseous substances in a continuous state of agitation under the surface of the Earth. We are looking for magmatic forms of audiovisuals, unconventional moving images that burn on the screen, breaking with common rules of aesthetics and narrative. The festival is open to national and international filmmakers. Any film with no limitation of duration or genre is welcome to apply.

GEMS - OPEN CALL FOR VIDEOPOEMS
A collection of precious stones. We are looking for videopoems, those films that stand on the border between audiovisual languages and words - written or performed. The festival is open to national and international filmmakers. Any film with no limitation of theme or duration is welcome to apply.

THIS YEAR  WE WILL HAVE ALSO A SECTION OF FILMS FOR KIDS:
DROPS - OPEN CALL FOR SHORT FILMS FOR KIDS (age 8-12)
We are looking for animations and short films for kids. Soft and refreshing as small drops of water.

(Being it a free-entrance festival, we ask you to pay a small fee for the submission of your film, in order to support the festival and make it possible to happen)
