The International Competition of Animated Films, Regulations

30.11.2008 eLnadruhou o. s. announces The International Competition of Animated Films, Documentaries and Feature Films which will take place as a part of eLnadruhou – Not Only Lesbian Culture Festival.

By organizing this competition we would like to offer a chance to all students to express their opinions about LGBTIQ topics in a form of short animated films. We hope that it will bring new view of young generation – which is our future – at the topics of coming out, parenting and encounters. We hope that by their views and interpretations they will give an opportunity to glance at the queer community even to the less tolerant individuals and also give a sort of reflection to the queer community itself.
The deadline for submission of applications is April 15, 2009. The announcement of winners will take place during the closing ceremony of eLnadruhou – Not Only Lesbian Culture Festival on May 26, 2009 in theatre Atlas. The three winning films will be awarded financial prizes in total value of 30,000 CZK.
All submitted films will be judged by professional jury. More information about regulations and application form can be found in section „Festival – Year 15 (2009)“.
