Underdog Film Festival is an annual competitive festival dedicated to the often unheard voices in motion pictures.
Focussed on the short form, it is a festival that highlights the projects of filmmakers who are struggling to get their work seen. We are looking for a unique blend of arthouse, experimental film aas well as non-fiction and want to see courageous and innovative narratives that deserve to be experienced, discussed and promoted.
The festival has an annual structure and will include different types of short film competitions as well as additional special events. First, the judges will privately review the submitted materials, then shortlisted films will be screened as part of our live screening schedule and the daily Peepshow booths. Ultimately, judges will vote on the shortlisted films and the audience gets to vote via the Peepshow programme. Winners will be announced during our awards ceremony.
But above all the Underdog Film Festival is a place that wants to bring people together and give them a place where they can discuss the things they are passionate about. On that note, we hope to entertain you!
