Sharjah Film Platform opens for film submissions

Sharjah Art Foundation is inviting local and international filmmakers to submit their films for the 5th edition of Sharjah Film Platform (SFP). Submission deadline is May 15, 2022, with the event set to be staged in December

All films selected through the open call will be automatically considered for a juried award in the documentary, experimental and narrative categories. SFP screenings take place in the heritage area of Sharjah at the open-air Mirage City Cinema, Al Mureijah Art Spaces, and other venues across the city.

SFP provides a critical platform for emerging and established filmmakers, producers, critics and students alike. The platform has three main components: a curated film programme and awards; a public programme of talks and workshops as well as industry events, including the Pitching Forum and the SFP Short Film Production Grant, which funds films that premiere at the festival.

Sharjah Film Platform is an annual Sharjah Art Foundation film festival launched in 2018 to advance film production in the United Arab Emirates and the surrounding region. The festival continues the Foundation’s longstanding commitment to film programming and the support of established and aspiring filmmakers.
