The call for entries goes out to an international field of applicants via film and art colleges, art academies, technical colleges, universities, film and media agencies, film clubs, as well as culture and education centers and via our website.

»backup.award« is an international contest of filmic works that leave the traditional ways of analogue cinema behind.

Short film and video works with a length of up to 15 minutes can be submitted if they are no more than 2 years old.

All common film and video formats are acceptable. We are especially interested in works that explore new artistic approaches and deal with the plentiful relationships between content and digital form.

In this competition, prizes totalling €4,500 will be awarded.
