The Golden Eyes Film Festival is a project of the students of the Film Studies Department within the Faculty of Arts at the Charles University based in Prague.

This festival is focused on the practical work of film theory students and students of related fields.

We believe that films made by such students are often unique in the way they use conceptual and film history knowledge to produce works that explore a range of theoretical ideas and can even reflect upon the very nature of the medium as the means of an artistic expression.

Submitted film footage must be UNDER 15 minutes.

We are searching for audiovisual works made by theorists!
We are looking for a different approach in film language and film form!
No limitations in the choice of topic!
No genre or film form limitations!
No technical quality requirements!

Golden Eyes Award (Main prize of the festival)

Chris Marker’s Objective (Best Documentary)

Kurt Kren’s scratched glasses (Best avant-garde film)

Perceptual Eye of the Audience (Audience Award)

Gaze of Jiří Anger (Best audio-visual essay)

I agree with the screening of my film during the Golden Eyes Reflections:
Golden Eyes Reflections are non-commercial screenings of selected films after the termination of the Golden Eyes Film Festival.

By sending this form you agree that the film, that you have submitted, can be included into the programme of the 27th International Film Festival for the film theory students Golden Eyes, that will take place during September 2022 in Prague.

  • Me sorprendió que mi cortometraje “Espejo” fuera seleccionado para este grandioso festival. Estoy muy agradecido por que hayan observado mi trabajo y hayan hecho un espacio en su agenda para su proyección. Aunque no me fue posible asistir, estuve al tanto mediante redes sociales.
