Contact International Student Film Festival is a short film festival organized by the joint collaboration of the
Faculty of Communication and Faculty of Arts and Design at Yaşar University (Izmir, Turkey).
In its first pilot edition of the festival in October 2014, we have been teaming up with some of the most prestigious
film schools around the world (among others London Film School, FAMU, Korea University of the Arts, Zelig Film School)
to present a non-competitive showcase of the current student film productions from Europe and beyond.
The 2nd and 3rd editions of Contact brought to Izmir the best films by the next generation of filmmakers, inaugurating a
new international competition section. The guest film schools invited to Izmir were HFF Munich and LODZ Film School
respectively. Other schools selections included Louis Lumiere (Paris, France), Erciyes University (Kayseri, Turkey) and
Mimar Sinan FAU (Istanbul, Turkey).
For the 4th edition of the Festival (23-27 October 2017), we are developing an exciting program which will include once
more an International Short Film Competition and La Femis (Paris, France) as the guest school.
We therefore invite all current university students of film and media and students that will graduate in the academic
year 2016-2017 to submit their films.
Here at Contact we are interested in your stories and the way cinema can convey them: thats why the main competition
will accept a mix of fiction, documentary and animation films, without distinctions of genre.
An out-of-competition programme will feature screenings and masterclasses by international guests and film schools,
special presentation and exhibitions, workshops and talks.
