e-flux is very pleased to announce the open call for submissions to the second edition of e-flux Film Award

e-flux Film Award welcomes short-film submissions from both emerging and established artists who subvert and redefine traditional narrative forms, broadening our understanding and perception through the mastery of both film form and content.

Selected by a jury of distinguished artists, filmmakers, film selectors, and curators from open submissions, it is awarded annually, with three awards given: a first prize of 3,000 USD, a second prize of 2,000 USD, and an honorable mention. Awarded films will be presented and screened at the e-flux Screening Room in New York.

e-flux Film Award 2024 will be juried by Saodat IsmailovaShana Moulton, and Elena Vogman. Submissions will be reviewed for preselection by Lukas BrasiskisDmitry Frolov, and Steff Hui Ci Ling.
