10-12. December 2021 / Yugoslav Film Archive
on-site edition

The call for entries is open

Kinoskop is a indie niche festival, based in Belgrade, dedicated to the exploratory tendencies and experimental ways of working with celluloid in a digital era, and a showcase of imaginative works of cinema which trigger strong audio-visual stimuli and puzzling afterthoughts, rooted in the spirit of experimental, surrealist and underground cinema. We are looking for fiction, animation, experimental, found footage, documentary, personal cinema, music videos, DIY and punk, and the esoteric and obscure, particularly supporting works coming from independent film labs from Europe and the rest of the world.

Our second edition in 2020 has been a large success due to its online availablity, thus we have decided to make the 2021 a hybrid edition, which will encompass three days of on-site screenings, and additional program(s) presented on our Vimeo page. Programs will be curated by veteran experimental film aficionados Nikola Gocic (film writer and critic and visual artist), Marko Milicevic (film author and founder of the audiovisual initiative Kino Pleme), Ejla Kovačević (member of Zagreb filmlab Klubvizija and 25FPS festival collaborator) and Aleksandra Dalichow (founder of ExperimentaL CinemA and film reviewer). Similarly to previous years, one part of the program will be centered on audio-visual performances and live soundtracks, and also a slot for a filmmaker in focus.

Films will be awarded in the categories : Grand Prix, Best Soundtrack and Audience Award. Members of the jury will be announced on our page and website.

Deadline for submissions is August 31st.

Best Original Soundtrack

  • Vraiment un des très rares festivals à surtout retenir la créativité et l'originalité d'une œuvre, aussi complexe soit-elle (...). C'est assez exceptionnelle à notre époque du " consumérisme artistique ". Félicitations à toute l'équipe ! !.
    Je recommande très vivement ce Festival (...).

    Really one of the very rare festivals to especially retain the creativity and the originality of a work, as complex as it is (...). It is quite exceptional in our time of "artistic consumerism". Congratulations to the whole team!
