Call For Entries- International Debut Film Competition 2022

Cinema South Festival 2022 invites filmmakers to submit their Debut film in diverse genres:
fiction, documentary, hybrid, experimental, animation and others, to the festival that will take place between 6-10 November 2022. 

CSF is produced in the south, by the people of the south, and is based on a unique cultural agenda relevant to its location. "The South" is a cinematic worldview that heralds a cinema of meager means, yet rich in compassion; a metaphor for films made in the peripheries in view of evoking a critical dialogue.

The festival is seeking films by filmmakers who have an explicit artistic signature and style that apply a bold cinematic language with a profound focus on content and form. 

We invite you to submit your debut films to the festival in accordance with the regulations on the website.

Who can submit?

  • Filmmakers for whom this is their first or second full length film made outside of film school (starting from 65 mins.).
  • Films whereby production ended in 2021-2022.
  • The screening of the film at CSF must be an Israeli premiere, therefore a film must not be submitted that was screened or broadcast in Israel.

The application must be submitted via electronic registration form in English and signed by the applicant on the festival website (via the electronic form) with a link to view the film (if the film is not complete, a rough-cut version will be submitted).

**The festival board is authorized, at its discretion and at any time, to disqualify the application of any film whereby the details on the registration form are incomplete and/or 
**incorrect and/or the applicant did not comply with an undertaking above and/or according to the program regulations.
