Film and Television University 'Konrad Wolf'
(HFF) Potsdam and filmArche, calls on film-makers
throughout Europe to participate by submitting
films for the Forum EUROPE: UNLIMITED Competition.
The short films submitted should find answers to
the question: 'Is there such a thing as Europe
and if so how many?' All genres are permitted:
the short films can reveal points of view on
Europe in narrative shorts, animations,
documentaries through to experimental film. The
films should be no more than three years old and
no longer than ca. 15 minutes in length.

1st Prize 2,500 eu
2nd Prize 1,000 eu

Closing date for submissions is 31 July 2014.
The selected films will be presented in
mid-November 2014 at the two-day Forum EUROPE:
UNLIMITED, at which topics of relevance to Europe
will be debated between academia and the public
sphere. The highpoint of the event is the award
ceremony on 14 November 2014.
On the online platform www.europe-unlimited.eu
some contributions can already be viewed and
discussed in advance. The submissions there are
not necessarily part of the competition and may
not be more than three years old. More

About EUROPE: UNLIMITED
Europe is more than an institution, an economic
and currency union. Europe is a cultural and
legal sphere with a definition that shifts
depending on who defines it and when, and who is
presenting visions of the continent's future.
Europe is thus always the place where Europe is
being re-designed - even in the current crises.
The fact of Europe's heterogeneity is often
obscured in public perceptions by a unitary
narrative of 'Europe'. But is Europe a real,
functioning place, or just a group of places with
shared outer borders? What holds Europe together
and what drives it apart - where do old
solidarities end and new ones form? How can
people with very different ideas of life and
different cultural and social backgrounds
successfully live together? And how are we
experiencing the current crises: as European -
anti-European - global?
The Forum EUROPE: UNLIMITED wants to encourage
the discovery of new narratives for Europe and to
illuminate original wishes for the future. Europe
will be given complex expression in the Forum
debates between scholars and film-makers
discussing around 20 selected films.
The Competition is interested in individual
points of view. It should not be about academic
analyses: rather, the submissions should reveal
authentic images of the current mood and describe
large, small or just unusual aspects of the
diverse forms taken by Europe. We invite
film-makers to make their own contribution to
fruitful dialogue at the interface between art
and academia, one that shakes off conventional
thinking about Europe and offers long-lasting
inspiration for the future. Counter monotony, and
film for diversity!
