Call for Entries for the 6th ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival

For the sixth time, the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival is calling for entries to find the best poetry film.

Entries may be short films made on the basis of poems. Prizes will be awarded in the Competition to a total value of EUR 10,000. A Programme Commission will nominate the films for the competition and select the films for the various programme categories from among the entries, and a Jury with an international line-up will name the winners.

The prizes to be awarded will be the ZEBRA Prize for the Best Poetry Film, donated by the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin, the Goethe Film Prize, donated by the Goethe Institute, the Ritter Sport Film Prize, donated by Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co KG and the Audience Prize awarded by the jury of radioeins listeners.
Children and young people will be able to award their very own prize: the ZEBRINO Prize for the Best Film for Children and Young People will be awarded by a jury of children to honour the best poetry film for eight-to-twelve-year-olds.

Closing date for entries for all the competitions is 2 May 2012
