The Euro Film Festival Geneva will celebrate the best that cinema has to offer, showcasing films from established independent filmmakers as well as emerging storytellers.

Organised in Geneva - in the heart of Western Europe - this third edition provides a platform for the most promising filmmakers around Europe. It aims to promote the projects of independent filmmakers to the broader public, as well as potential sponsors searching for the possibility to invest in different international projects like screenplays, feature- and short films.

With over 15 award categories, it will be possible for entrants to receive multiple nominations for more than 1 project.
An industry professional jury from Europe, USA and Canada will decide on the winners of each category after the final entry deadline.
A selection of the jury's favourite films will be screened at our annual event. Entrants of chosen screening films will be notified prior to the event.

Participants and entrants agree that clips from their film and/or any additional material related to their project may be used and/or published in the event program, the festival's website and for any promotional purposes which the Festival organisers deem appropriate.

No screeners and/or promotional materials will be returned to the filmmaker.

If selected, all commercial/private property including but not limited to all trademark/copyrighted materials shown or recorded on the project is the responsibility of the filmmaker.

The Festival and its organisers can and will not be held responsible for any infringement of copywritten materials.

    Great experience. Very excited and honored for the recognition of my work. An excellent international screenplay competition worth competing in. The festival makes my short list for my projects in the near future. Will compete again soon!
