In close cooperation with major international film festivals, German Films invites international festival delegates to Germany for specially organized pre-selection screening sessions. These several-day sessions offer the unique opportunity for the festival delegate to screen a large of number of films in a very short amount of time and helps to consolidate the festival application and screening process for producers. Generally, films which are submitted and screened through German Films are exempt from the festival application fee.
Prior to each screening session or collective sumission, German Films sends out a call for entries to producers, listing the exact requirements and deadlines for the screening/submission.
Register here for the Film Submission Management System and submit your film for a pre-selection screening and/or collective submission.
German Films also organizes COLLECTIVE SUBMISSIONS for various festivals. These collective submissions offer filmmakers and producers the opportunity to submit their films via German Films to a festival and be exempted of the festival's general submission fees. Here you will find information pertaining to the cooperating festivals and deadlines.
