Call for Films


‘Experience teaches only the good observer’ - Andre Gide


The LIDF is calling for submissions. The call is open and international. All subject matter is considered. Feature length and short film categories. First time and established filmmakers all welcome.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has chosen the LIDF as a qualifying film festival. Recipients of the festival’s prize in the Documentary Short Subject category will now qualify for consideration at the Annual Academy Awards® (OSCAR®) without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.

The festival is competitive and awards are offered in the following categories: ‘Best Film’, and ‘Best Short Film (under 40 mins).

The LIDF is a platform for radical and groundbreaking output from around the globe. We look to support new and innovative filmmaking talent.

We look forward to seeing your films.
