Dear Friends!

We are very happy to announce that the 35th TRIESTE FILM FESTIVAL, the leading European festival focused exclusively on Central Eastern European cinema, is OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS!

We are looking for feature films and documentaries (only Italian premieres), short films (both fiction and animation) from Central and Eastern European countries.

The submission deadline is September 30th, 2023.

Emerging talents and great masters from Central & Eastern Europe have already attended our festival in the past editions with their best film productions, because the Trieste Film Festival represents today a unique appointment in Italy with the cinema from these geographical and cultural areas that we investigate and love so much!

The Trieste Film Festival is: tons of good films, meetings with festival guests, an international coproduction forum, masterclasses, art and photo exhibitions, performances, concerts, special events, books presentations, kids programmes, in a town which has always been a gateway to the East, a privileged observatory onto the New Europe, a lovely city by the sea where East and West meet.

For submission please go to the following link: SUBMISSION 

You can find the regulation HERE

Looking forward to receiving your films!

The 35th TSFF will be held in Trieste from 19th till 27th January 2024.
