Film Front started back in 2003 as “Film and Video Festival of Vojvodina”. Since 2005 the festival took place under the name Independent and Short Productions Festival - Film Front, and as of 2017 the official festival name is International Short Film Fesitval – Film Front.

The ultimate goal of Film Front is to promote young filmmakers and their auteur’s expression, no matter if it is experimental or traditional. The audience is given the opportunity to take a closer look at the achievements in the production of short films from the whole world, as the Festival has an Official International selection. We are also aware of the significance of preserving the national and regional cinema, and therefore our audience has also the chance to keep up with the Serbian and regional short film productions watching the Serbia/region selection. Both selections are in competition program.

Film Front is traditionally held on the last weekend of October, in the Cultural Centre of Novi Sad, with free admission to the whole program.

The call for submissions usually opens in May and lasts until mid September. Film Front welcomes fiction, experimental, documentary and animated shorts. The films must be up to 30 minutes in length, and must be produced during the current or the year before.

Winner of the Serbia/region selection is chosen by the professional jury, whereas the audience votes for the winner of International selection.
