Welcome! The Holland Film Festival 2021 is now open for submissions. The Festival takes place in Bergen Holland. Bergen is a beautiful village known for its painters, poets, writers and other artists. It is a green village near the sea and it is near Amsterdam and the Hague. Bergen is the home town of many film and TV personalities, directors, writers and producers.
What we are looking for is quality, original stories, craftmanship and cinematography. It may sound pedantic, but we want well made films and video with good sound and good lightning. Craftmanship and creativity are both important. We will accept crappy but brilliant stories, as we think ‘story is all’. But remember, a good story well told is worth watching while a good story told bad is a missed opportunity. Don’t let this message keep you from submissing your work. We know you put a lot of effort and love in it and we appreciate that.
We offer screenings, workshops and a market.
We invite young filmmakers too. This category is for filmmakers from 11-14 and 14-21
The Festival starts at the longest day of the year. We accept all genres.
Ultra short < 1 min, very short, < 5 min. Rather short < 10 min. Short < 50 min. long >50min.
We also have a first time filmmaker / student category.
