Ars Independent Festival 2019 will be the 9th multimedia festival of film, animation, video games and music videos. The upcoming edition will take place in Katowice, between the 24th and 29th of September 2019.
The festival is searching for what’s cool in young, debuting, contemporary audio-visual culture. It’s not afraid to watch videos with 27 views on YouTube, it’s missing the “least popular” sorting option on itch.io and considers Festival Scope Pro decidedly “too mainstream”.
The heart of the festival are four international competitions, in which the audience decides about the awarding of prizes. The Black Horse of Film (feature films from all over the world) and the Black Horse of Animation (short features) present the cinematographic debuts by directors from the entire world, often as their Polish premieres. The Black Horse of Video Games and the Black Horse of Music Video are devoted to new games and music videos.
Call for Entries
Ars Independent Festival 2019 is searching for the Black Horses! Call for entries for the four international competitions (films, animations, music videos and video games) last from December 18 to April 26. In all categories nominees will compete for the title and a statue of the Black Horse and the monetary prize of 500 euros. Prizes will be awarded by festival audience. The nominees will be informed of the results of call for entries up to June 14.
