International Short Film Internet Festival
Tbilisi International Short Film Internet Festival “Diogenes 2022” has been active for the previous three years.
The main aspiration of our internet festival is the propaganda of low-budget short film production;
Our duty is to select, objectively assess and recommend the movies, that use simple cinematographic methods, but tell the most interesting and polymorphous stories in 15 minutes.
“If it is impossible to project the interesting tale in 15 minutes, then there is no story or the teller is poor.” – this is the basis of the festival.
We invite you all, the movie directors, to participate.
The motto of this year’s festival is “love ascends us”.
- Film submission starts on January 18th, 2022, and ends on October 18th, 2022
- The grand opening of the festival will be held on November 16th, 2022 and the grand closing ceremony will be held on November 27th, 2022 (Partially on an online platform)
Submitted films must go through 2 selective rounds, after these procedures they will enter the contest. The selection process is conducted by the competent commission.
