Submit your film

Film Fest Gent is a competitive festival, focusing on "The Impact of Music on Film" at which some 12 to 15 feature films compete for two prizes. The competing films are viewed by an international jury, which will pick out two films for following prizes:

* The Grand Prix for the Best Film
* The George Delerue Award for Best Music (Best Application of Music or sound design)

As to shorts we have a competition for international shorts (max. 30 minutes); and one for Belgian student shorts. We also present a program of non-competing international shorts, for this section no restrictions as to production year or length are set.
We will expect to present the film in (at least) it's Belgian première.

Submissions are welcome until 1 July 2024 through the online entry form in your MyFFG-account.
