Call for entries
Deadline: 25 January 2015


Dear artists and filmmakers,
you are cordially invited to participate in the LICHTER ART AWARD 2015.
The LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International has been celebrating local and international filmmaking since
its very early days in 2008. Besides a competition in the categories short and feature film, the festival
presents a high-quality program on contemporary video art.

The LICHTER ART AWARD is an international competition and exhibition, aiming to present the most
contemporary, diverse and high-quality artistic works in the field of visual arts related to film. Accepted are
works which use film and video as a primary media. The competition is open to visual artists, filmmakers and
students from art and film academies. To keep the high quality of the event, we want to make sure the works
submitted meet high professional standards. The LICHTER ART AWARD is not a laboratory – it is a
showcase for finished works.
Five finalists’ works will be exhibited throughout the festival period from 17th to 22th of March 2015. The
LICHTER ART AWARD winner is endowed with a 1.000 Euro prize for the best work. A jury of art experts will
select the best works.
The finished work must be submitted by January 25th, 2015.
