Chicago Palestine Film Festival 2005: Call for Films

Call For Films

The Chicago Palestine Film Festival is issuing a call for films by Palestinian filmmakers and for films about Palestine for our fourth annual 2005 festival as well as subsequent festivals.

The Film Festival committee accepts films and videos of all genres and of any duration. For films with non-English dialogue, English subtitles are required. Film selection criteria include artistry, technical skill, and content. We are especially interested in work by Palestinian filmmakers, but nationality is not a selection criteria.

Preview editions must be VHS or DVD in either PAL or NTSC encoding. These preview copies become property of the Festival committee and will not be returned. The filmmakers retain all rights to their submitted films.

The deadline for submissions for our 2005 festival is January 31, 2005. Submission does not guarantee exhibition of the film in the Chicago Palestine Film Festival. There is no submission fee for the Festival, but the Festival does not pay screening fees for submitted films.

Preview copies should be sent to this postal address:

Chicago Palestine Film Festival
637 S. Dearborn Ave.
3rd Floor
Chicago, IL 60605

You must complete the 2005 Film Submission Form online so that we have all of your contact information and information about your film if it is selected.
