Submissions for LUCAS 2018

Submissions for LUCAS 2018

The deadline for the short film competition was on May 4, 2018. We want to thank you for all the submissions we received from all over the world!

The selection committee will now select the films for the competition program 8+ and 13+ from the best national and international submissions. You’ll find the whole program in due time at our website.

The 41st edition of LUCAS – International Festival for Young Film Lovers will take place from September 20 – 27 2018 in Frankfurt and the Rhein-Main region.

LUCAS presents up to date, international films for young audiences. Outstanding fiction-, documentary-, animation-, and experimental films are part of the four LUCAS competitions. 16 feature films, as well as a selection of short films, will compete for the LUCAS awards.

For the short film competition, we accepted productions with a length of max. 30 minutes. In addition, the film had to have its German premiere at LUCAS.

Feature films have a minimum length of 60 minutes and were not yet released in German cinemas. A selection committee visiting festivals and important industry meetings choose the competition films for the sections 8+ and 13+. Our main focus hereby lies not on premieres but on a high level of quality. We accept submissions for the feature film competition only in exceptional cases.

The next call for short film submissions will be in the spring-time of 2019 for the 42nd edition of LUCAS – International Festival for Young Film Lovers.
