Feature films have a minimum length of 60 minutes and have not yet been released in German cinemas. A selection committee visiting festivals and important industry meetings chooses the competition films for the sections 8+, 13+ and 16+ | Youngsters. Our main focus hereby lies not on premieres but on the highest level of quality. We accept submissions for the feature film competition only in exceptional cases.
