Regulations

Mission and Aim

The High Coast International Film Festival is a two day event - Saturday and Sunday - held in the High Coast in North of Sweden focusing on Avant Garde and Experimental Film.

We offer accomodation to all selected film makers as well as to Film Organizations at the absolutely stunningly Hotel Björkudden.

The core foundation and principle for the Film Festival itself and for the Film Program we put together is : "Personal Artistic Expression through the Medium of Film".

There are no special sections for contemporary relevant films or attention to any special topics - Film as an Artform, as a means to express and artisically investigate is what puts the Film Program together.

For the 3rd Edition we are preparing five different sections that will screen throughout two days - Sunday through Sunday.

- Feature films
- Experimental Films
- Fiction Films
- Documentary Films
- Films from the Region Vasternorrland

All films longer than 60 minutes are considered Feature Films and should therefore be Submitted into that Category. All films in the Categories Experimental, Fiction and Documentary must be shorter than 25 minutes, including credits. This means we will not screen any films between 26-59 minutes also called "Mid Length Films".

For a film to be eligible for the Category "Films from Vasternorrland" the Film must either be Produced in Vasternorrland or made by a Director living in Vasternorrland. Accepted Film lengths are 0-25 minutes or 60-90 minutes.
