Film Submission for 2022

Films for the upcoming edition of CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival Linz can be submitted now until 7 January 2022 at the latest. CROSSING EUROPE 2022 will take place from 27 April to 2 May.



European Films

European films (feature-length fiction or documentary films – minimum length: 60 minutes; no short films!) can be submitted. We are looking for innovative European films, which reflect current political and social realities of Europe‘s changing societies. CROSSING EUROPE wants to trace a cinema that tells of regional peculiarities and different conditions for living on this continent. We aim to open up new cinematic territories, which are under-represented in everyday movie business.

What is considered a “European Film”?
According to CROSSING EUROPE regulations a film is considered „European“, if either director or (co-)production or the story is based in one of the states of the continent. Above that, the film should deal with European topics.



Local Artists

This program section presents recent films/videos from Upper Austria and offers Upper Austrian filmmakers an international platform for the presentation of their work. Films and videos of all genres, formats and lengths are welcome, including music videos.

Filmmakers are invited to submit their most recent productions, if they are either born in, currently living, working or studying in Upper Austria, as well as if they’ve received financing from Upper Austria for the submitted film, or if the film has a clear thematic reference to Upper Austria. In the case of submissions for the Music Video Award, the origin of the musicians is also considered to be a reference to Upper Austria.
