"PUT YOUR CAMERA IN ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS"

The Erronka Munduan (Challenge for the World) contest has a different profile than other traditional festivals. We do not have a deadline for audiovisual production, so we give entry to new productions but also others that are already outside the traditional distribution period of other festivals.

OUR OBJETIV is to put filmmakers into action with their contribution to spread messages that attract attention and try to provoke reactions in society that help change the world.

We know that among all filmmakers we have many "human rights" themed audiovisuals that have already had their distribution tour and are now sleeping openly published on YouTube and Vimeo. We want to give them a new life, recover them, to spread them as virally and massively as we can.

With the name Illusive Eye the optical process by which animation occurs in our brain by generating movement from the illusion produced by the rapid exposure to images in sequence is evoked. Animation offers the construction of credible universes, capable of freeing us from the limits of immediate reality.

With the coming of current communication technologies, animation has gained even more ground than it had in Film, Didactics and Videogames. Now, with the internet and the power of cell phones, mobile applications and the interconnection of devices and institutions with the network, animation has become an essential part of the language of interaction between the user and the world.

This audiovisual language has extended its discursive horizons as far as the human imagination reaches, and technically its evolution has allowed it to overcome reality by opening a fantastic vortex that provides immersive experiences and high doses of empathy as well as tons of fans of all ages and throughout the world, developing any theme with great aesthetic contributions and various levels of depth.

In honor of this abyss of creativity and as an invitation to immerse ourselves in it, this meeting space has been created for creators, scholars and amateurs. Looking to show not only its strength in the current film narrative but the presence of other types of speeches built on this means of visual expression: GIFs, memes, stickers, emoticons, headers, symbols for social networks, interface elements, banners, promotions , and any type of element generated from the illusion of an eye.

We are NGO of film enthusiasts named as Nirvan Foundation.
We are on a mission of providing platform for anyone who wants to showcase their artwork to the world. As the first step to this mission, we have formulated and sustained Jyotiba Phule International Film Festival

In 1855, Mahatma Jotiba Phule wrote his play Tritiya Ratna (Third Gem), which is also called ‘Tritiya Netra’ (The Third Eye). This play was the harbinger of social theatre. That is why Phule is known as the father of not only Marathi but also Indian social theatre. He had written this play with the objective of bringing about social change. Phule was an active social worker and thinker. He not only theorized social change but also worked for it and built a movement for social reform.
This Film Festival is small tribute to Jyotiba Phule's work!

More Than Just A Festival!

Art, in all forms, inspires us. From the first drawings of prehistoric man to Artificial Intelligence driven illustrations, the journey of art has been one of curiosity, progress, and redemption. The form of cinema is the most impactful of them all. It is only this art form that has the power to blend time with space. The real and the images correspond to one another in films. It is only in cinema that we can reflect, introspect and often modify our realities as well as our history. It is a medium to look into our past and our future.

The transnationality of films often translates one civilization to another. Cinema is a calling card for the universal values of humanity.

We are here to celebrate this power of films: the power to unite, the power to transform and transcend. We are at the Chennai World Cinema Festival!

Tamil cinema has a history of 100 years.

Rangaswamy Nataraja Mudaliar (1885 – 3 May 1971) is known as the father of the Tamil Nadu film industry and was a pioneer in producing silent films. He had, directed, and released South India’s first silent film ‘Keesaka Vatham’ in 1918. The first Tamil talking feature film, Kalidas, a multilingual directed by H M Reddy was released on 31 October 1931. More than 100 Tamil movies are produced every year. Chennai is the Capital of the Tamil Cinema Industry.

Jane Austen International Film Festival

Bath, United Kingdom

Logo of Jane Austen International Film Festival

Deadline
15 Jul 2023


Published: 05 Jan 2023
 Has submission fees
Short films


This is a festival for independent filmmakers who produce works in the following genres: animation, art-house, comedy, documentary, drama: including historical/costume drama, experimental, extended shorts, horror, LGBTQ+ and music video. (Music videos should have an artistic or experimental flair)

The festival is named after Jane Austen because of her great storytelling and her connection to the city of Bath, England where the festival takes place. It's not only historical and costume dramas we accept but all genres of short and feature films are welcome. We are looking for the most exciting and innovative storytelling, films that challenge and inspire audiences.
The Jane Austen International Film Festival is a competitive independent festival held annually in Jane Austen’s splendid Georgian city of Bath, England. We celebrate global independent filmmaking with ambitious programming, creating enriching screening experiences. During the festival we encourage networking and aim to give everyone an entertaining and enjoyable festival experience.

The Jane Austen International Film Festival is named after the famous English novelist Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) who resided for many years in the city of Bath and is known primarily for the major novels; Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.

What sets us apart from most other film festivals is our dedication to view every film submitted from start to finish. We believe it is imperative to view films in their entirety in order to make a fair and careful selection during the nomination process.

All screenings will take place in the historical, grade II listed, Little Theatre Cinema, located in the centre of the Georgian city of Bath

Our aim is to provide not only a memorable cinematic experience for audiences but also an enriching festival event for independent filmmakers. We are looking for the most exciting and innovative storytelling in these different genres, films that challenge and inspire audiences. Our festival is more than just a screening space, it is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and help bridge the gap between audiences and film creators.

Our focus on short-form filmmaking stems from an appreciation of the unique position short-form storytelling occupies within the cinematic universe. These films are generally harder to access and have difficulties reaching larger audiences. However, their position outside of mainstream cinema and their abbreviated length allow the filmmakers more experimentation and artistic freedom.

The JAIFF selection committee is made up of international industry professionals and the festival founders. The festival judges are high standing industry professionals.

The PISFF is amazingly energized for its grandstand season and plans on getting better compared to other film festivals in Pune.

PISFF helps autonomous movie producers to make and show their skills and to find and celebrate unprecedented movies and create free filmmaking. Our Jury group is searching for potential movies and producers for scheduled meetings with officials from the film and media business. PISFF will have screening occasions at the Pune with post-screening Q&A with executives, makers and entertainers and the open door for them to coordinate with industry experts at our networking occasions and workshops.

PISFF is back in another extended format in 2023. In the principal occasion of the new decade, go along with us for a couple of diversely hypnotizing films that imagine hyper vivid universes of experience on screen.

PISFF is built up as a means for supporting and advancing film movie producers everywhere throughout the world. Our central goal is to advance exceptional artists by giving a portal to extend their vocations in media outlets. We sparkle a light on the obscure artists of today, helping them turn into the praised movie producers of tomorrow.
