Call for Submissions for the Okotoks Film Festival

The Okotoks Film Festival in partnership with the Calgary Arab Arts & Culture Society is calling all Egyptian Short Filmmakers to submit their films for the festival.

The Okotoks Film Festival is a five-day international festival that is held annually in the town of Okotoks, Alberta, Canada, just south of Calgary.  We are entering our seventh year of the festival!

We are thrilled to continue to support filmmakers as well as give the opportunity for audiences and filmmakers to connect. Each year we create a short films package from a specific country. This year the selected country is EGYPT. We are looking for films that were shot in or made by filmmakers from Egypt or with Egyptian heritage.

What kind of films are we looking for?

Films in any genre shorter than 45 minutes in length and completed after Jan 1, 2017. Narrative, Documentary, art films, music videos, and any other film creation. Films will need to be presented in English or with English subtitles.
