The Festival shows a selection of films dealing mainly with birds in their natural environment, wildlife, environment or nature generally speaking. Feature films or commercials are not allowed. There’s no duration limitation for professional films.
The 30th edition of the Bird and Nature Festival film competition was very special and lasted 2 years in total.
It all started with a record 200+ films submitted from 30 countries in autumn 2019.
Pandemic prevented us from showing the selection to our Festival-goers in 2020, it was rolled over to April 2021. But the cinemas were closed again, so we went digital and our public really appreciated to be able to watch the films on our website.
We’re really glad to open the 31st call for entries at last. We’re expecting films dealing with birds, wildlife, environment or nature wildly speaking.
A total of €14,000 are awarded to the best professional and amateur films in competition.
NEW: A new Prize is now dedicated to professional films of short duration.
Please read the rules before submitting your film.
You can enter your latest productions until November, 5th, 2021 on this website.
This competition is also open to amateur wildlife filmmakers who do sound recording, shooting or editing as a hobby and on a non-profit basis. Amateur films must be of 3 to 13 minutes duration.Enter
