As we prepare the starry sky for this year’s eighth edition of the Star Film Fest, we remind all interested filmmakers of the open applications for the competition program and that they are open until May 16, 2021.

Star Film Fest has officially opened entries for the competition program. All young filmmakers between the ages of 18 and 35 in the year of film production can apply to participate.

Entries must not be longer than 25:00 minutes and must be produced in the past two years, at the earliest on January 1, 2019.

The Eighth Star Festival will be held in Sisak from 26 to 28 August 2021. Competitive films can be entered in the categories of documentary, feature, experimental, animated and industrial film.

In addition to the awards in the mentioned categories, the “Special Star” awards will be given for the best film according to the audience, the best regional film, the best editing, the best photography (camera) and the selector’s best film.

This year, one of the winning films has the opportunity to win “Stardust” – a cash prize that will encourage the winner to further create.

Submissions are open until May 16, 2021, and all conditions of participation can be found in the rules. You can apply via the Festhome platform or via the application form  on the official Star Film Fest website. The application is submitted in one of the following ways, so that the same application would not arrive via the Festhome platform and via the official website.

From year to year, Star Film Fest gathers interested cinema audiences as well as young filmmakers from Croatia and all around the world. Last year, the seventh edition of Star Film Fest was held at the location of Theater 21 and online, via a live stream on the official website. This year we hope for a great atmosphere and even more applications.

We are looking forward to the eighth edition of Star Film Fest and enjoying the films under the starry sky of Sisak, regardless of the circumstances.
