ShanghaiPRIDE invites submissions for 2015 Film Festival

Paul Gustafson January 8, 2015

ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival (ShPFF), a vibrant new platform for emerging film talent, is inviting film makers from China and around the world to showcase their work during the annual ShanghaiPRIDE week, June 12-21, 2015.

Shanghai Film Festival

ORGANISERS ARE looking for the best, brightest, most innovative and most engaging new voices in queer cinema to submit works which tell LGBT Chinese stories, and which create awareness and promote tolerance for the LGBT community through film.

In the spirit of Shanghai PRIDE, filmmakers of all backgrounds are welcome to participate, whatever their sexuality, gender or nationality, and submissions are open to professional, student or first time storytellers. Fiction, documentary and experimental projects are all encouraged, with rewards in each category.

A winning film will be selected to represent Shanghai at the UK IRIS PRIZE FESTIVAL, one of the world’s most dynamic LGBT film competitions, with a prize of £25,000.

To qualify for entry to the UK competition via the Shanghai festival, films must be submitted to ShPFF by March 15, 2015.

The final deadline for all other ShPFF submissions is April 15.
