    CALL FOR ENTRIES:

    Vienna/Austria and Mainz/Germany
    July 2005
    www.ohnekohle.net

    With access to affordable production techniques for the creative it can be
    hard to tell the difference between home-made video and high-end film
    productions. The medium video though shall not be understood only as an
    alternative to the long tradition of celluoid, but also in it´s unique
    aesthetics. „Film- and Videolook“ will be concerned in the programming as
    well. The festival offers a stage for all productions and producers who
    are unable to find broad resonance due to the economic situation of the
    cultural landscape or those lacking the support of a network like a
    film-school. It aims at highlighting innovative ways and means that enable
    producers to nonetheless create amazing works. It offers a plattform for
    exchange of innovative solutions before, during and after the festival.
    Being able to knit international cooperations at the first edition of
    „Ohne Kohle“, selected programs travel through whole Europe.

    Regulations for participation:
    1 open short film competition (all genres) short movies up to 15 minutes
    are preferred for this category! Commercial productions, commissioned
    works and productions on contractual order are excluded. The displayed
    works must not have received substantial public subsidies. (Lend of
    equipment and compensation for material costs are not considered as
    subsidies - salaries for technicians and writers, however, are.) Main
    criterium in the evaluation of the film is not mainly the film as such,
    but rather the relation between the circumstances of production and the
    final result, i.e. the innovation and creatvity of the producers enabling
    them to make a film with “No Budget”.
    2 Documentary Movies “No Budget” (no restrictions in length) Commercial
    productions, commisioned works and productions on contractual order are
    excluded. The definition of „No Budget“ is the same as at the open short
    film category. Additionaly, choice of subject and and quality of
    investigation are also criteria of evaluation.
    3 Special Theme “Human Rights/Dignity”: all genres, documentaries preferred
    This is a special category for works dealing with the subject of human
    rights or dignity in general. What was once an idea of setting a standard
    of values can be described as often violated by major forces. Dignity in
    general may be the right term to describe the subject without a religious
    context. Open also to commercial and subsidised movies. Main criterium for
    evaluation is the the handling of and reflexion on the subject. What we
    also want to see are also works dealing with the topic in an extraordinary
    way.
    4 „Longplayers“ As budgets are not available/tight for our definition of
    „No Budget“- film-making it seems to be an almost impossible task, to do a
    high quality piece of fiction/art which is longer than 20 minutes. If you
    think you are up to prove that this is wrong, please send us your
    fiction/art longplayer!
    Like categories 1 and 2: Commercial productions, commisioned works and
    productions on contractual order are excluded. The displayed works must
    not have received substantial public subsidies. (Lend of equipment and
    compensation for material costs are not considered as subsidies - salaries
    for technicians and writers, however, are.)
    In Vienna there will be a broad offer of free workshops and lectures from
    professionals, who will focus on "no budget" alternatives. Also there will
    be screenings from international independent festivals and parties.
    In Mainz (27-29th of July) will be a „light“ version of the festival
    (screenings only), but it will be open air.
    Please download the entry form from: www.ohnekohle.net We feel deeply
    honored, if you send us your film(s).
