Chelsea Film Festival Announces Open Call for Submissions

July 12, 2013 | By Myriam Laville

The Chelsea Film Festival is a new international film festival, dedicated to supporting emerging and independent films from around the world. Founded this year by French actress, Ingrid Jean-Baptiste, the festival will take place in Chelsea, New York.

Two films per continent will be selected and three will receive a prize: the Grand Prix, the Jury Award and the Audience Award. A committee of twenty people will select a dozen feature length films - two from each continent. They will all have to meet certain criterias: being a low-budget film which has been shot within two to three years, and which has never been screened in New York.

It will take place at the SVA Theatre from October 24th to October 27th, 2013. The theme of the year is the "Global Issues" (social, environment, politics, and economics).

Call for submissions is now open.

Online submissions available until September, 24th.

Comments are moderated and generally will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive.
