TheNextFilmFestival International

The best from the best of young filmmakers around the world


TheNextFilmFestival International is both a film competition and a talentcamp for talented young filmmakers. We have teamed up with a group of the best international film festivals and film schools and asked them to send their choice of the best national film and the filmmakers to TheNextFilmFestival International along with a film teacher 

The competition

Ten films from around the world – most of them already award winners – are in a special section competing for the honour and a prize of 1000 dollars. The winner of TheNextFilmFestival International will be announced at the galla-award-show of Odense International Filmfestival which is hosting TheNextFilmFestival 


The talentcamp

Each of the films in the competition will be represented by two young filmmakers with a dedication to filmmaking and previous experience . The 20 international talents will be teamed up with 20 selected young Danish filmtalents for a couple of days of workshops, masterclasses and networking.


The teachers

Each country in the competition will also be represented by a film teacher. All the teachers will get together for workshops and sharing knowledge with the goal of sharpening their skills in the field of teaching film production to young talents.
