DIAMETRALE is the first International Film Festival in Austria, which sets the focus exclusively on experimental films. The selected movies break with conventional rules of film making and aesthetic norms.

Especially, we are interested in HUMOURISTIC, ABSURD or GROTESQUE experimental movies.

Festival Review 2017: https://vimeo.com/224175581

Event Date: March 22-24, 2018
Event Location: Leokino Innsbruck - in the alps of Austria!
(Big screen, up to 200 visitors.)

› Film Prize: THE GOLDEN FRAME. Inside The Golden Frame is a signed drawing (print) by Austrian artist NICOLAS MAHLER.

› FIlm will probably be screened on several film festivals (tba.)

› Selected film makers will get invited to the festival. We'll support you with traveling costs and accommodation!

› Each entry should contain EXPERIMENTAL, SURREAL or WEIRD elements in the broadest sense. Submissions, which also show HUMOURISTIC, ABSURD or GROTESQUE potential, will have the best chances!

› Apart from Experimental Shorts we're already looking for FEATURE / DOCUMENTARY / EXPANDED CINEMA / INSTALLATION / PERFORMANCE for 2019! Film makers will get the opportunity to present their work in Innsbruck/Austria. We pay the cost for traveling and accommodation.

› With the submission the film makers give permission to use short excerpts or screenshots from the submitted films for promotional purposes.

    Tiago Rosa-Rosso had this to say about the festival: "Diametrale, It has been day and night, day and night and we couldn´t control it. Leokino is a mytical cinema, the short films where carefully curated and the alignment was perfect, PMK offered a variety of great concerts all night long. Ohne theorie kiene revolution. Probably one of the best experimental short film festivals you can find organized by people who really love cinema."
