‘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 LIDF is a platform for radical and groundbreaking output from around the globe.

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 qualify for consideration at the Annual Academy Awards® (OSCAR®) without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.

The LIDF is also a BAFTA recognised Festival Category A.

The festival is competitive and awards are offered in the following categories: ‘Best Film’, ‘Best Short Film’, ‘Special Mention’.

We look forward to seeing your films.
