 The Competition



Is a world wide international film competition the only festival in the world to reward every entry for its hard word and achievement. Film festival organizers are aiming to bridge cultural differences between many countries and people from different backgrounds and heritage. The festival is also aiming to make a cultural impact to people who understand & know little or near nothing about other people's culture hoping to break cultural barriers.

Therefore, the festival organisers are running and offering awards in a large range & various categories for filmmakers to compete in.

Colortape International Film Festival is joining forces with global partners in order to create an international competition which will run in every corner of the globe.

From a technical point of view our aim for the competition is to discover and merge new talent, from the world of amateur and professionals in making commercials and films, whilst encouraging students, from media, graphics design, animation, film, IT, marketing and other related fields to enter a unique competition and be discovered & rewarded with the help of Colortape, a privately funded and managed film production organization.

Calling all artists, fans and budding filmmakers to enter many of the available competition categories, which vary from: feature films of various lengths, multi-languages with English subtitles, shorts, commercials (promo format) of a length of 60 seconds or less, short film categories (from 1-60 minutes), musicals, iPOD vidlets, chromakey montage works etc.

Some competitions will need to adhere to particular themes, others need to be made in according to their Periodic (quarterly) listing. These competitions are for the professionally skilled & trained people aiming to impress fellow competitors, general viewers, sponsors, educators, judges and current or prospective employers.

"Many people talk about the comparisons between the arts and film, animation or graphics design, actors and filmmakers, the great movies and TV commercials ... well we are done yapping!

COLORTAPE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL hopes to bring the best and greatest artists, filmmakers and the creative mind together.

The opportunity has arrived for all amateurs and professionals or advanced creative minds to compete at an international level from wherever you come from or live, and we welcome you to register in any chosen category at Colortape International Film Festival.

Be it either a TV commercials, mere logo designs, banner, lower thirds & title creation, VFX, SFX, animation, or any form of digital promotional work for mobile technology, web, DVD or other, our passion for the big screen is matched by our passion for marketing - we embrace this new venture with open arms and look forward to viewing the public's response to our worldwide competition.

Chief Executive Officer & founder, Alexandru Schiller states…
"Our festival competitions are a terrific initiative for the world filmmakers and the film market that provides an opportunity for all creative minds from various background, who wish to engage or already work in the areas of graphics design, animation, film & video pre & post production and filmmakers to show the world, the everyday web surfer, the marketing world, future employers and the whole world wide community wherever they are and whatever their interpretation or cultural background might be that we can create a collective pool of ideas, from one corner of the world to the other, and reward those who have great creativity, vision and talent that is beyond ones imagination. It will be intricate or unique. As the chairperson I look forward to viewing as many of the competitions entries as possible."
