Platonic Film Competition is a bi-annual film competition focusing on international cinema. Our aim is to support new filmmakers and to promote the research and development of new means of expressivity through storytelling as art among diverse audiences.

The film competition runs on a bi-annual basis. The final deadline for our next selection, as well as the notification date are posted in the right-grid competition timeline.

All winners will receive online certificate awards and laurels will be offered to all participants who made it to the Official Selection.
Only films selected in the Competition will be showcased in the Platonic Film Competition Official Screenings.

Platonic Film Competition will be an outstanding event, where the audience can see new films, participate in workshops and meet filmmakers.

We guarantee that a jury of film professionals will view all submitted films. We encourage filmmakers who created their films with a low budget to enter their film to the Platonic Film Competition. The judgement criteria of the submitted films are new ideas, experimental cinematography, talented work of actors and storytelling point of view.
