Did you know that in 2017, after marijuana was legalized in California, an artist/prankster climbed up to the sign, at night, in the rain and altered the world famous sign from Hollywood to Hollyweed, thus causing an international news story and creating a psychological disruption for the business as usual residents of Los Angeles. We aim to disrupt business as usual with the Hollyweed Film Festival. You know the drill, submit your film, pay the fee and never hear back from whatever festival you...

Spotlight: Guillaume Canet

  Guillaume Canet’s sensational, highly diverse acting career has garnered him a reputation rendering him a household name in his native France, as well earning him significant recognition internationally. The celebrated film figure has also thrived in forging the notoriously tricky transition from acting to directing, a delicate evolution that takes as much brazen pluck as it does sensitive astuteness. Indeed, Canet’s gradual shift into directorial wor...

POOL InternationaleTanzfilmplattform Berlin

POOL is a recurring format for dance- and animation-film. The Aim is to create a platform for dancers, choreographers, directors, artists, organizers and other interested people. POOL offers space for a mutual exchange of experiences, developing and advanced training, and presentations prospects. It`s a platform for those kinds of films, which picture dance not as a simple documentation, but more as a creative piece of art, using cuts and several other techniques for creation. We also like films which include every kind of non-dance movement in choreography. Moreover biographies of creators are less important or whether it`s a high or low budget film.

Films shouldn`t be longer than 30 min and also not only a documentation of a dance piece. That means the filmed material should be edited in any way. Exceptions are films, which use the pure documentation as a part of the creative process.


Director: ALEX QUIROGA .
LOVE YOUR ENEMY Jordi is in love with a famous rock singer Rain, but his life is not what you want, and that his adoptive parents never revealed their origins, making a dent in your current life. In his work as a researcher, his stepfather makes it a very personal request, find the story James G, a Spanish disappeared during the military dictatorship (1976-1983). Jordi access and travel to Argentina is an excuse to evade their marital problems. But fate is playing a trick, since harassed by former Argentine military will make your task is not easy. One day hopefully gives a woman a victim of repression in Argentina that puts you in the right direction, contact Mario Zosa which is a old retired military police to tell him with all details the kidnapping, torture, and interrogation of James.
