The Chicago Palestine Film Festival is issuing a call for films by Palestinian cinematographers, directors and artists for the 2003 and subsequent festivals. Works being accepted include short, experimental, documentary, and feature length films. (For films with dialogue, english subtitles are preferred).
Criteria for film choice will be based on artistic merit, technical skill, and content. We are especially interested in the work of film-makers of Palestinian origin.
Films can be submitted in DV (preferable), VHS, or Beta format. NTSC format is preferred but PAL is also accepted.
The Chicago Palestine Film Festival (CPFF) is an independent,
not-for-profit, non-sectarian project based in Chicago that exhibits and promotes films by Palestinian directors and films about Palestine.
CPFF is dedicated to presenting a film festival that is open, critical, and reflective of the culture, experience and vision of the filmmakers.
The deadline for all film submissions is January 31, 2003. Items submitted to the Chicago Palestine Film Festival cannot be returned. Submission does not guarantee screening of the film.
The 2002 Chicago Palestine Film Festival was a great success in its first run with over 1,500 attendees. The festival was selected as the “Critics Choice” in the weekly Chicago Reader newspaper (circulation 150,000).
