As part of next year’s anniversary celebrations, the film festival – in partnership with the 400th anniversary – has announced a competition allowing anyone, professionals and amateurs alike, to submit an entry and compete to create Göteborg Film Festival’s most viewed, most widely discussed film: the vignette film.

In 2023, one of the thematic focus areas for Göteborg Film Festival will be Gothenburg itself. We will be trawling the film archive and taking the pulse of contemporary Gothenburg to continue writing the city’s cinematic history during the forthcoming festival. We will also be inviting the whole of Gothenburg and Sweden to submit their images of the city! All that is required in order to enter is an idea for a film. The festival will then provide a budget of SEK 50,000 to produce the winning proposal.

Read more about how to participate in the competition at goteborgfilmfestival.se.

You do not need to be an established film-maker to take part. If a film-maker submits the winning entry, the production funds will be used to produce the vignette film. If not, the festival will use a production company to turn the idea into a film, based on the winner’s instructions. It will be the best film concept that determines who wins the competition.

The competition is being run in partnership between Göteborg Film Festival and Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary, and will be project managed by Göteborg & Co, part of the City of Gothenburg.
