- 2012 [English] Call for entries

For the fifth time Oblo – a small non-profit cinema in Lausanne, Switzerland – organizes its independent short film festival Oblò Film Festival (OFF) that will take place from September 7-9th 2012. The festival follows the same non-profit principles as the other activities of the Oblò Cinema and therefore there is no cashprize for the winner. The aim of the festival is to give an opportunity to show a panel of quality short films, especially those who don’t fit the standard model, promoting original forms of expression.

All movie formats are welcome: fiction, animation, experimental and new-media. A selection of the best movies will be screened during the festival.
