Call for entries

The world's only film festival combining visual arts with science, the Alexandre Trauner ART/Film Festival 2024 will be held in Szolnok, at the TISZApART Cinema, from 15-20 October 2024.

The festival invites entries in the following categories:

1. Feature Films Competition

In 2024, we select 10 feature films made after 1 January 2022, where the visual style of the film is a key element. In this section, the films will be judged by an international jury on the basis of the coherence of the visual flow, the story and the visuals, and the overall impact of the visual techniques used (built sets, original locations, CGI). (Award recipients: the film's production designers).

2. Fine Art Films Competition (competitive)

In the category of fine art, we are looking for the introduction of works from January 1, 2022, which are intended to present (re) interpretation of fine works of art by means of film, and the life stages of one or more artists (art groups). In this category we accept films that reveal certain trends, periods and social contexts of fine art. Last but not least, we are waiting for movies that are made using some of the tools of fine arts. Animation films are also part of this competition and must be submitted into this category.

3. „Spectacular Science” Films Competition (competitive)

In this competition category, we welcome portrait films from January 1, 2022, about scientists, or documentaries visualizing scientific discoveries and nature and environmental protection. Among the named works can be experimental films that use the results of science and technology to renew the motion picture expression, as well as films dealing with the relationship between science and pseudoscience, and pseudo-documentaries that present scientific discoveries that do not exist.

4. Short Films Competition (competitive)

This category is open to live-action fiction and documentary films made after 1 January 2022. There are no genre or age restrictions, but films must be no longer than 30 minutes.
