We are pleased to open the fourth season of the Switzerland International Film Festival with live screenings in the enchanting country of Switzerland.

No matter if you have never made a movie before, but have a burning wish to do so, or you have already made hundreds, this is the Festival for you.

What sort of movies you make, whether you create complex dramas set in medieval times, prefer fast-paced action thrillers or make nothing but western shaky-cam romantic comedies, we want to hear your story and see your vision!

Your submission can be new or old, long or short, everything we require is that you are proud of what you made!

    I was very honored that my film, GOLDEN, was included in the 2020 festival. As we all know, 2020 was a terrible year for film festivals because of the Covid-19 pandemic, so live festivals were almost impossible, which is why I haven't commented on hospitality and networking. But the SIFF team worked hard to figure out some solutions and the online event went smoothly. Although I missed the opportunity to meet other artists and people in the community in person, on the other hand, the films were undoubtedly seen by more viewers. Thank you, SIFF!

    These guys were fantastic at facilitating my screenplay MODERN ART as a Semi-Finalist and communicating well in spite of all that was going on at the time!
