Press Release from eDIT 14th Filmmaker’s Festival

The eDward will be presented at the eDIT 14th Filmmaker’s Festival and is aimed at creative filmmakers under the age of 30 from all over the world. Competition participants are invited to enter a 30-second film on a specific theme.

The theme of this year’s competition is: FREEDOM!

This year our aspiring filmmakers have been asked to create films about “freedom”. People aspire to freedom – it is something that all of us, all over the world, of all ages have sought at all times. But what is freedom exactly? Is it more than simply “being free of” something? What do we associate with the term “freedom” and why does it mean so much to us? We invite young filmmakers to show us their vision, their dream, their story (or stories) of freedom.

Deadline for entries is Monday, 19 September 2011.

The winners of the three best films will be invited to eDIT 14. Filmmaker’s Festival on 30 October – 1 November 2011 in Frankfurt. The winners, chosen by an international jury, will be announced and awarded at the festival. Aside from the unique eDward Trophy, the awards include monetary prizes in a total of 4.000 Euro plus further material prizes. Attention: Free entrance to the entire festival for all participants!

Further information concerning the eDward as well as registration forms can be found on the Internet: www.eD-ward.de.

You can download and print a short information leaflet about the eDward in PDF format here. We would be grateful if you would pass on this information to your students by forwarding this e-mail and printing out and hanging up the leaflet. This year’s theme may even provide an exciting addition to a lesson or seminar topic.
