New Renaissance Film Festival ( Amsterdam, N L)

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

THE NEW RENAISSANCE

The spacious cinema LAB111 will again be the home of the New Renaissance Film Festival (NRFF) for its 6th edition. This friendly art-house festival which is based in London, and was called “One of the UK’s top film festivals” (London METRO, O1.08.16), has premiered and screened films that went on to win an Oscar or received a major distribution deal.

Despite its relatively small size, there are each year many gems to be found among the many short and feature films in the programme. Furthermore, many filmmakers and actors are traditionally present, and a lot of productive networking takes place.

Apart from a high number of international films, NRFF Amsterdam has a strong LGBTQ+ presence, and a category for Dutch Films.

ARTISTICALLY-DRIVEN FILMS, INSPIRING STORIES

Film is a unique medium, and NRFF’s mission is to support and champion inspiring, independent artists and storytellers. This includes experimental work, emotional drama, SF films and an exciting variety of LGBTQ+ shorts and features.

Our festival is built around ARTISTS and their STORIES. By doing so, we aim to establish an international COMMUNITY of inspiring storytellers. We are not interested in following current fashions or being political. We seek out stories that are genuinely imaginative, emotional and life-affirming. At the heart of what we do is our passion to tell great stories.

To get a feel for the festival, visit the 2022 programme website: www.nrff.nl

INCLUSIVE AND UNIQUE

The festival has several categories for International, Dutch and LGBT filmmakers. We especially love quality dramas with strong emotional themes, but we accept ALL genres. We are also proud to attract a high number of female directors.

Follow our NRFF page on Instagram and Facebook for photos and interesting updates.

SUPPORTING THE INDEPENDENT FILM COMMUNITY

It is our passion to not only provide a stage for our filmmakers but also to strengthen the INDEPENDENT film community, By building an engaged audience through social media. We actively encourage directors, screenwriters, producers and actors to network during the festival and after the event. By doing so, new collaborations have occurred.

PRIZES

Semi-Finalist and Finalists in each category, as well as Best in each category. Other prizes will be announced during the festival. Check out the festival's website and the archive section with the previous winners. 

Categories: , , , , ,
GENRES: Action, Adventure, Animation, Biography, Children, Comedy, Crime, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Sports, Thriller, Western

FAQs

When and where does the NRFF take place?

The New Renaissance Film Festival takes place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 28 Feburary - 3  March 2020. A festival programme will be announced nearer the time, including venue details. 

What happens once I’ve submitted my film  or my screenplay?

Once we have your information, your fee and your screenplay we will start the judging process. Please be patient – in most cases you won’t hear from us until after the very final deadline has passed. We will get back to all submitters as soon as possible.

How do you decide which screenplays to award?

We will not simply select those that already have won an award. We hope to find new gems and discover excellent stories that move us, challenge us and above all inspire us.

We realise this to be highly subjective, but we will definitely try to be open to a diversity of different voices and points of view.

After the judging process is complete, can I get any feedback?

The judges unfortunately cannot offer any feedback on unsuccessful entries.

Are there any age restrictions on submitting to the festival?

There are no age restrictions for submitting to the festival so everyone is welcome to enter. Work can therefore be entered on behalf of someone who is under 18 and it is your judgement call as to whether you think the work is suitable.

Can I alter my entry once it has been submitted?

No alterations can be made to submissions once they have been received.

Can I enter more than one screenplay?

You may enter as many as you like. You must purchase a separate entry fee for each, and you must also complete the online entry form separately for each.

Is entry to the festival open to international entrants?

The festival is open to international submissions. We welcome submissions from all over the world and look forward to seeing a huge variety of entries.

Do you ever consider waiving fees?

Unfortunately we cannot offer any discounts or waive the submission fee. We will not review your work without it. We will not make any exceptions. All indie filmmakers struggle financially but if we waived the fee for every filmmaker who asked then we wouldn’t be able to provide this festival platform.

Will New Renaissance Film Festival pay for me and/or my crew to come to the festival?

Sadly we can’t afford to fly filmmakers or screenwriters over for the festival.

Will you pay for my accommodation if I attend the festival?

No, we can’t afford to put you up either. We can advise you on accommodation though, if you wish. We are currently seeking for sponsorship to develop our hospitality budget.
