|The annual iFolt (International Festival of Local Televisions) is held in Košice,
Slovakia. One of the changes in the use of media is that young people use smartphones
and on a daily basis post short videos to social media. So, to include these videos
in the festival, here's a new and exciting category to compete in: "Xtreme Short Films".
The winner will be awarded the 'Katya Frederiks Award'; a diploma and a prize of
€ 200.- which will be handed over at the Awards Evening at the end of the festival,
on Saturday June 16 2012.
So, how does it work? (all relevant links at the bottom):
Your footage doesn't need a story, it may be just funny, beautiful, horrible, abstract
or whatever (Legal rules of Slovakia apply though). The main criteria will be the
visual attractiveness and content quality. After moderation (you will be contacted
on admission or rejection) your entry will be published on our Youtube channel and
comments on the entries go there and/or on our twitter account.
Regular news will be published on our Facebook page.
