23rd August 2017

We regret to inform that the jury of the Common Baltic Short Film Contest has decided not to proceed with the Internet vote. This is because of the fact that many submissions did not meet the subject requirements of the competition.

We would also like to remind all present and future participants to carefully read the terms and conditions, and to submit only pieces that follow those rules.



The contest is open to all participants, both professionals and amateurs aged 18 and over from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and Poland. Films one to five minutes long may be submitted. Films may be submitted by no later than 11 August 2017 via an online submission form available on the Adam Mickiewicz Institute's website.
The Adam Mickiewicz Institute, under the brand Culture.pl, Polish Film Festival, Pomeranian Film Foundation & Gdynia Film School have announced the 3rd edition of the Common Baltic Short Film Contest, centred around the universal theme of the Baltic Sea region.

The organisers invite participants to engage in creative pursuits and answering the questions: how has the Baltic Sea region been changing in terms of arts, society, politics and economy? Is there a common identity shared by the countries from the Baltic Sea region? Does the Baltic Sea unite or perhaps divide the nations living at its coasts?

The authors of the best films will be awarded a GoPro Hero5 Session video camera at the 42nd edition of the Polish Film Festival. The winners who accept the invitation of the organisers to participate in the festival will have the opportunity to see the latest Polish films and take full advantage of the festival’s events. The Adam Mickiewicz Institute will cover all transport and accomodation costs.
