Call for Entries Student Award 2019

The students of our participating partner universities are invited to submit their current documentaries for the Student Award 2019. Films of any length which have neither been broadcast on German television nor made freely accessible on an online platform are admitted. Premieres will be preferred.

In addition to long and short documentary films, we are also happy to receive submissions in hybrid and experimental formats. This year the megaherz Filmproduktion will again provide the Student Award with prize money of 3,000 euros.
