Dear colleagues and friends, we are glad to open the submissions call for the official program of the 10th Worldfilm festival to be held at March 18th-24th 2013 in Tartu, Estonia.

With about 6000 viewers, hundreds of film entries and about 50 films in our festival program, our festival fits perfectly into the small University town of Tartu in Estonia, being each year attended by a group of knowledgeable and curious filmmakers from all over the world, but also industry professionals, as well as friendly and supporting festival audience. It has become a long awaited meeting point to all of them.

Worldfilm festival screens documentaries and creative documentaries which are dealing with cultural diversity and cultural representation.

This year our deadline for film submissions is October 15th, but in case of expected World premiere, negotiations for including the films can be made up to the beginning of December. After that we will announce our final selection of films for the official main program

Important: there is no competition program, entry fees nor screening fees.

In order to complete the submission, please go to our call for entries page and after reading the more detailed regulations, please use the entry form in the right column of the text to fill in the information about the submission.

When submitting a film for preview, you are welcome to submit two copies of a film instead of the usual one copy, in order to make sure, our program team will be watching your film sooner and more conveniently.
