The 5th Annual Polish International Film Festival is launching its 2022 Call for Entries, inviting filmmakers around the world to submit feature films, documentaries, shorts, animation, experimental and other interesting works.

The Polish International Film Festival is established to support independent filmmakers to get international recognitions, exposure, and opportunity for their careers.
Films (any length) can join different categories and will be presented in front of a panel of juries.

This year we will have a Screenplay Reading Contest for short screenplays (20 pages and under) and full length feature screenplays (under 200 pages and higher).

Each film/screenplay that is submitted is watched and read from beginning to end by our programmers and judges, so you know you will receive proper consideration of your creative work.

Festival Program:

- Opening Date: October 4, 2021
- Notification Date: August 1, 2022
- Event Dates: August 8 - 12, 2022

All participants will be notified by phone or mail about the date of the Festival.

If you shot a good story it must be known in the world. So your film has a great chance to get the status of official selection and you can use our label.
