(No commercial use is intended. Copies will not be returned).

Notification of selection for the 2022 programme with detailed information will be sent by March 2022. You will receive an acceptance or rejection letter in any case. If your film is selected, you agree to the use of film stills and excerpts (max. 150 seconds) for the general promotion of the Film Festival Bolzano (incl. TV broadcast and web etc.). Registration at the festival implies acceptance of these regulations. The programme decisions including the allocation of films to the individual sections in the programme are subject to the festival management and cannot be contested.

In addition to current films from neighbouring regions, individual curated film programmes will also be screened at the festival which do not meet the above criteria in terms of content and year of production.
