Ji.hlava New Visions Forum: Europe

The call for submissions is now open!

The event is dedicated to the new generation of European producers, new formats, innovative trends, and visions for the future. The programme is open to diverse audiovisual formats.

At the core of the Ji.hlava New Visions Forum is the pitching of fourteen carefully selected European documentary projects – both in the development stage and in production / post-production stages. The event will take place on October 30–31 during the Ji.hlava IDFF and will be attended by film professionals and other stakeholders in the film industry accredited at the festival. The presentations take place in person.

The call is traditionally open not only to documentary films but also diverse audiovisual formats such as fiction with documentary aspects, hybrid, experimental, short films, docu and web series, cinema expanded projects, games with documentary aspects and VR / AR / Live documentaries.

In our selection process, we focus on the artistic vision of the project, its originality and author-driven character, visual style and fresh spirit, international potential in terms of financing and development of collaboration, openness for sharing the project with other partners, as well as diverse modes of distribution.

The call for submissions to the Ji.hlava New Visions Forum 2024 is now open, with a deadline on August 15.

The submission is free of charge. In one call you apply for both Ji.hlava New Visions Forum and also Ji.hlava New Visions Market. The selected projects will receive two complimentary Industry Accreditations.
