International Media Arts Film Sholarship 2023 – Karlsruhe




Media art is universal. With regard to the independent film scene, numerous media art movements are now diversifying in the sub-genre “film as media art”. Together with the INDEPENDENT DAYS | Internationale Filmfestspiele Karlsruhe, the Filmboard Karlsruhe would like to offer independent filmmakers without great financial opportunities a production option for a low-budget project worth 3,000 Euro.

For the third time, the Filmboard Karlsruhe announces the Media Arts Film Scholarship within the framework of Karlsruhe – UNESCO City of Media Arts. They are looking for artificial short film ideas that tell a story in a creative and unusual way. Whether fictional, experimental, or documentary – all short film ideas are welcome. This year, immersive project ideas are also permitted for the first time.

The film idea should not exceed a running time of 10 minutes and have not yet been implemented. An expert jury will select an idea from all the submissions, which will then be implemented in cooperation with Karlsruhe filmmakers.

This call for applications is aimed at all creative professionals who work in the field of “media art” and / or “film”; student projects are also welcome. There is no age limit. Media artists from other UNESCO Creative Cities of Media Arts are to be addressed in particular. Participation is also open to all other filmmakers and media artists.

The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2023.
