A selection of films entered into this international competition will be presented to professionals visitors during the Forum’s 3 days, from October 28 to 30, 2014, at the Centre National de la Danse in Pantin (just outside Paris), but also to the public in the context of 3Discovery, held throughout the area in November.

 

 

A panel of industry experts will gather at the end of September in order to select the final competing films, which will be screened during Screen4All Forum for the 1,000 visitors expected.

 

 

This year’s competition will feature seven categories:

 

  • Fiction (feature / TV content / short film)
  • Documentary
  • Animated film (single or series)
  • Live content (concert – sports – event)
  • Commercial content (advertising, corporate, graphical overlay, music video, trailer)
  • Special format (theme park, museum, art installation, experimental program)
  • Student film

 

 

After evaluating all films entered in these categories, the panel will award four special prizes:

 

  • Grand Prize
  • Innovation prize
  • Best 4K film
  • Best 3D film

 

 

« We have entered a new era. 4K technology has now entered the consumer market, which is why we have chosen to give it a special place this on this year’s event. We are once again expecting a festival with many incredible projects in these new formats, » explains Stéphan Faudeux, Director of the event.

 

 

The competition winners will be selected based on the relevance of their use of new technologies and on their film’s storytelling, but also on the emotions it conveys. The winners of the four special prizes will be revealed during the awards night on October 28, during Screen4All Forum.

 

 

Last year’s festival screened some 30 films, and visitors could see Monsieur Hublot, a short film in 3D that was awarded Dimension 3 Festival’s Grand Prize and went on to receive the Academy Award for best animated short.
