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.

The Euro Film Festival Geneva is an international 𝗜𝗠𝗗𝗕 𝗤𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗳𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 film festival:

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.

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.

Overall Rating
  • It was very disappoiting winning there. All we got was our movie implemented on their webside and a digital laural to download. Thats it!

    Then they forgot our movie to put on their webside. After telling them, they did it the next day.

    But first of all we got a writing with congratulations from last year with event dates from last year.

    Then Carolina was congratulating us. She answers questions very quickly, but not all questions. We did not get answered who is the jury. Who has chosen the movies?So we guess Carolina did it by herself. Also not answered was who are the sponsors. So we guess there are no sponsors as we cant find any sponsors on the webside. You cant make a real festival with no sponsors.

    Moreover it seems like a lame excuse that the main stuff member in geneva got covid an died (my condolences, if so) and after that they tried to replace it, but the theater let them down and did not organise the physical event due to covid. But wait, covid, wasnt that in 2020? Is Carolina writing me something that happened in 2020 and is telling me why they dont make a physical event in 2022? Look, what she wrote to me:

    -Copy paste-
    Unfortunately, our main member of staff who is based in Geneva who had the responsibility of actually hosting the festival etc fell ill with Covid and unfortunately passed away because of this. We did then try to find a replacement for them after this unfortunate event but the theatre which we paid a fee of $1000 to - let us down and did not follow through with the organisation of the physical screening event for the festival. We can give you the name of this theatre in Geneva if needed. As they haven't answered our email for more than 1.5 years.
    -End of copy paste-

    After the dead of this member they were looking for a replacement but the theatre (Frank Martin Hall) let them down. So when was the thing with the theatre? It was in 2020 as Carolina was writing in an other mail:

    -Copy paste-
    The screening was due to take place there (Frank Martin Hall) in 2020 but due to Covid we had to cancel. We had already paid them 1000 euros in 2019 but after contacting them numerous times we never received a response or refund from them.
    -End of copy paste-

    So why is Carolina telling me what happened in 2020 when I was asking why they dont make a physical event in 2022?

    Then they have a contact adress. Its Frank Martin Hall in geneva. That theatre who is not responding to them for 1.5 years is the contact adress for Euro Filmfestival Geneva? Thats strange. The Frank Martin Hall belongs the city of Geneva. You cant contact the festival by this adress.

    On, the side where our movies are presented, is written:

    We can confirm that all the festivals on this aggregator are real. No online screening is ever made. 

    Well, we had an online screening and the year before it was also an online screening and I guess in 2020, too.

    So when they say they do only real festivals with no online screening but they do online screenings anyway then they are not real.

    You can call it fake festival.

    I was under the impression it would be an in-person festival. The online substitute website was not at all intuitive. I appreciate the recognition, but the festival this year seemed forgotten. None of the socials nor the website have been updated to reflect the festival occurring.

    From Christopher R. Owens, President, CESO Enterprises, Inc.

    On behalf of CESO ENTERPRISES, INC., Alyssa Dann, Chris Oledude, and all of our production participants, I would like to compliment the organizers and operators of Euro Film Festival Geneva. When we created our first music video (which was long enough to be a short film), we knew nothing about film festivals. With the help of FilmFreeway, we started researching. The categories were good. Everyone who contacted us on behalf of this festival was helpful. The submissions looked excellent.

    It was indeed exciting to discover this new world and to be so warmly welcomed by the inhabitants! To have GEORGE FLOYD: SAY THEIR NAMES selected for inclusion was an honor in and of itself.

    We were happy to “get the word out” and continue motivating people worldwide to consider the injustices embedded within our nation’s criminal justice system. After all, situations where a powerful segment of the population uses its law enforcement apparatus to abuse and oppress other segments of the population are recognizable in and common too many societies.
    We recommend submitting your work and we certainly intend to participate again in the future.

    Peace and stay safe!
