Blackboard International Film Festival focus to celebrate Film Makers and Creators around the world, who take the risk and do experiments in Film Making. We are an initiative to support and celebrate the Film Makers around the world. We watch films, we write and talk about them. Every month we invite Film Makers to submit their Short, Feature, Documentary, Animated, and Experimental works.

We will organize a physical screening in our small city Elambachi-Payyanur, located in the northern part of Kerala, India.

There is no competition for any category. We will be selecting some set of films that will be categorized as Official Selection. From the officially selected films, we will be selecting the Best of Films for the festival edition. All the selected films will get official laurel.

Best Animated Film.

Only the best films in each category will be screened.

We are accepting entries electronically through FilmFreeway.
Entries without English subtitles will be disqualified.
We accept Work-in-progress.
Multiple entries from the same submitter are accepted.
In case of any dispute regarding the rights of the film, Blackboard International Film Festival won't take any responsibility.
