2018 edition

About

Contact – International Student Film Festival is a short film festival organized by the joint collaboration of the Faculty of Communication and Faculty of Arts and Design at Yasar University (Izmir, Turkey).

In its first pilot edition of the festival in October 2014, we have been teaming up with some of the most prestigious film schools around the world (among others London Film School, FAMU, Korea University of the Arts, Zelig Film School) to present a non-competitive showcase of the current student film productions from Europe and beyond.

The 2nd and 3rd editions of Contact brought to Izmir the best films by the next generation of filmmakers, inaugurating a new international competition section. The guest film schools invited to Izmir were HFF Munich and LODZ Film School respectively. Other schools selections included Louis Lumiere (Paris, France), Erciyes University (Kayseri, Turkey) and Mimar Sinan FAU (Istanbul, Turkey).

Here at Contact we are interested in your stories and the way cinema can convey them: that’s why the main competition will accept a mix of fiction, documentary and animation films, without distinctions of genre.
