Until March 1st, 2022, 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 March 1st, 2022 can be submitted after arrangement. Further information and participation methods are available on the LICHTER website or in our submission form.
