Flicks in an organization that stems from the culturally involved student associations in Groningen (The Netherlands), the Cultureel Studentencentrum Usva.
Flicks is a film festival that gives national and international student filmmakers the opportunity to participate in a challenging and fun initiative. They can send in their short films to compete for best film during the Flicks Festival. The committee will carefully select the best movies, which will be screened at our festival in March 2017. There is no specific theme for the films topic. During the festival there will be a jury to select the best film overall. The aim is to make students aware of what other students can achieve through film. The short films offer an opportunity to view the world from a different perspective, based on other cultural backgrounds. The unique part of Flicks International Student Short Film Festival is that it is a cultural event that is organized by and for international students.
We are looking forward to show you the work of talented student filmmakers from all over the world at this year's festival!
We will accept a total amount of 550 films. The current number of submissions is 431, which means we will still accept more than 100 films after our re-opening on Filmfreeway. We will unpause the application form on December 20th, 12pm (UTC +1). We expect to reach the limit of 550 soon after re-opening, so make sure that you submit your film as quickly as possible after the 20th of December.
