Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Submissions are now open for the 16th annual Urban Nomad Film Fest, to be held in Taiwan from April and May 2017. Awards include video production services and NT$50,000 in cash prizes. There are three submission categories, as follows:
Taiwan Competition: for feature films, short films, documentary, animation or other video works produced in Taiwan by directors of any nationality, by Taiwanese living abroad, or by films otherwise connected to Taiwan
Taiwan Music Video Competition: for music videos produced in Taiwan or by Taiwanese bands
Out of Competition Section: for feature films, short films, documentary, animations or other video works from outside Taiwan or not wishing to join the competition
Submission deadline: Feb. 20 (Mon) 11:59pm (Taiwan time: GMT +8)
Generally, we are looking for works exhibiting strong visions, story-driven ideas and creativity. The competition sections intend mainly to foster the creative community in Taiwan. The “non-competition” section aims to show innovative filmmaking from around the world, through a mix of invited films and open submissions. Short films in the “non-competition” section have increasingly become a way of connecting with indie filmmakers in regional communities, especially Hong Kong.
If accepted, your work be screened as part of the 2017 Urban Nomad Film Fest, and competition entries will be eligible for cash and other prizes. As filmmakers, you will be celebrated as queens and kings of the earth and receive a festival pass to screenings and events.
