Dear filmmakers,

As of now, we are looking for new film productions from the Rhein-Main area and Hessen, which will compete for the titles of “Best Regional Feature Film” and “Best Regional Short Film” at the 16th edition of the LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International from the 18th to the 23rd of April 2023.

Until January 15th, 2023, films of all genres can be submitted for the two competitions. Place of residence of the director, (co)production, shooting- or (post)production location are considered characteristics of the films. Films that have received significant regional funding are also invited to participate.

A film jury of three prominent experts will determine the award of monetary and non-monetary prizes.

Films that have not been completed by the closing date on January 15th, 2023 can be submitted after arrangement.
