Dear colleagues and friends, we are glad to open the submissions call for the official program of the 9th Worldfilm festival to be held at March 19th-25th 2012 in Tartu, Estonia.

With about 6000 visitors, hundreds of film entries and about 50 films in our festival program, our festival fits perfectly into the small University town of Tartu in Estonia, being each year attended by a group of knowledgeable and curious filmmakers from all over the world, but also industry professionals, as well as friendly and supporting festival audience. It has become a long awaited meeting point to all of them.

Worldfilm festival screens documentaries and creative documentaries which are dealing with cultural representation and we are a member of a European Network CAFFE (Coordinating Anthropological Film Festivals in Europe.

This year our deadline for films is October 17th, but in case of expected World premiere, negotiations for including the films can be made up to mid-December. After that we will announce our final selection of films for the official main program.

Important: there is no competition program, entry fees nor screening fees.
