International Random Film Festival

Festival that takes place in a randomly selected location, on a random date.


The concept for the festival started as a critique to the world wide short film festival network and because of the common misconception, where many filmmakers are in the belief that all film festivals actually watch all the submitted work from the beginning to the end. There is a naive belief that program selections and award decisions are made based on an equal evaluation of the films. Especially young filmmakers are seeking approval from film festivals without questioning the methods used for the selections. So one morning it was decided to start a film festival with a random selection process that gives a truly equal possibility to all the filmmakers to have their film screened internationally.


The selected films will be competing for random awards.


There are no length, year of production, genre, and format restrictions.

Only one entry per director is allowed.

Documents and Other Requisite Items

Submit by filling out the online form. No DVD’s or screener uploads needed to participate. They are not going to be watched anyway.

Additional Information

Only one film per director is allowed. If you submit multiple films we will only accept the last submitted film. This also means that if you change your mind and want to submit a different film, just fill the form again.

You have to have the rights to distribute the film you are submitting.

The number of films selected to the international competition is: 50.

The festival will contact the submitter for the screening copy of the film once it has been selected.
